Submit a support ticket
To submit a support ticket, click the “New Support Ticket” link located near the top-right corner of the home screen.
Next, complete the required fields and click “Submit”:
Requester: This field will default to the email address associated with your support portal account. Optionally, you can CC other email addresses. For example, you could use this field to notify co-workers or managers that your ticket has been submitted.
Subject: A brief statement that describes the purpose of the ticket.
Description: A detailed account of the work you need Field59 to complete or problem that you are experiencing.
Attach a file: You may attach any files such as screenshots, images, or documents associated with your case.
URL: A URL associated with the web page or website where work should be completed or where an issue is occurring. This field is very important and allows us to serve you, and correct issues more quickly. Providing an accurate URL allows us to get directly to the webpage where an issue might be occurring, or where work is needed.
Product: Select the option that best fits your case. This helps us route tickets to the appropriate support staff.
Type: Select the option that best describes your case. Please note that we’ve removed the multitude of case types, and have distilled the options available in the old support portal down to 3 basic type of cases:
- Question: You have a question or inquiry that needs answering, or would like a quote on a new development project.
- Problem: You have a problem, or would like to report an incident that is occurring or has occurred.
- Task: You need us to do something for you; setup a new CMS login, create a section, traffic a new pre-roll campaign, etc.
Priority: Select an option that best fits your situation. Please reserve use of the Urgent (Emergency) priority for issues such as site outages. Please refer to the Field59 Support Policy for guidelines on what constitutes an Emergency.
Once your ticket has been submitted, you will receive a confirmation email indicating that the case has been successfully submitted and received by our support team.
Managing your support tickets
Once your ticket or tickets have been submitted, you can manage your tickets by selecting the “Ticket” nav on the portal home screen, or by clicking the “Check ticket status” location near the top-right corner of the home screen.
From the tickets page, you have the option of viewing any open or pending tickets, or all tickets including those that have been closed. Tickets that require your attention will include the following indicator:
The Field59 support portal also offers the convenience of replying to cases via email, so logging into the portal is not required for managing your cases. However, you can always visit the tickets page to view all of your tickets; even closed tickets. Closed tickets can also be reopened by adding a new reply.
