ChathamDirect online support site and knowledge base
The ChathamDirect client support team introduces our new online support site and knowledge base, available as a complimentary feature of your service. Accessible within the ChathamDirect platform, the site is designed to make it faster and easier to get answers to common questions and information about our system. We plan on enabling this service automatically by November 30 unless you specifically request NOT to have it available.
The ChathamDirect support widget
Embedded within all ChathamDirect pages, this support widget gives you direct access to our solutions content (user guides/help documentation) without leaving the existing webpage. You can also submit tickets to ChathamDirect Support or click the link to open the entire support site in a new tab.
Access to this widget is based on a company permission that we will activate on your behalf so that all of your company’s users can use this resource. We plan on turning this on for you automatically by the end of November, unless you specifically request to NOT have it available. If you wish to use this resource, no further action is required.
ChathamDirect support site
We built a website dedicated to helping you with self-service by answering your questions, soliciting feedback, and sharing information about ChathamDirect. You can access the site at www.chathamdirect.freshdesk.com. Please note, we will continuously work to expand the site over the coming months to provide as much meaningful content as possible for our users.
The site comes with two levels of access:
- Standard access means no sign-up required and visitors can view the solutions content (help documentation) and forums (e.g. product release notes).
- Full access requires sign up and verification by ChathamDirect Support. This offers the standard access, plus the ability to submit and view previous support tickets, forum posting capabilities, and more. If you would like to sign up for the full experience, we ask that you use the same email address for your ChathamDirect account. The password does not need to match, however.
If you have any questions about access verification or site content, please let us know and we’ll be happy to set up a conversation.
