We have recently refreshed our branding across our offerings and changed the names of our pricing plans. If you have signed up before Aug 9, 2021, please click Previous plans to view your applicable plans.
We assure you that this change will not impact your product experience, and no action is required on your part.

Every person raising a support ticket in your helpdesk through any channel becomes a contact automatically. If you let customers create tickets without logging in, a new contact will be created with the email they provide in the ticket form. 


Make your customers log in before they create a ticket or look at your knowledge base and forums by creating a new account or using Single Sign-on through Google or Facebook. In such cases, the email address will be the primary field through which the contact gets created. 

 

A new user can create an account by clicking the Sign up button on the top right corner of the helpdesk.



The sign up form will collect the user's name and email address. 


Repeated users can click on login on the top right corner of the customer portal. Even new users can click on login, use Google or Facebook to login for the first time.

 



If you would like to restrict your customers from signing up and/or logging into the Customer Portal, you can modify the Access control as required under Admin > Portals > Access Control. A quick guide on how you can customize this access can be found here.


User activation email


You can enable user activation email for users creating a new account and make your account secure from spammers. Once a user signs up, an email notification containing the activation URL, is sent out to them on their registered email address. The users can click on it and create a password for their Freshdesk account. This can be managed under Admin > Workflows> Email Notifications > Requester Notification tab.
