For agents of Tracker and editors of Answers, Fredonia switched from a server-based version of Atlassian products Confluence (Answers) and Jira Service Management (Tracker) to a cloud-based version of each.
Below are some tips for using the new cloud versions of Tracker and Answers more efficiently.
Answers - How can I get the Tiny URL Link for a Knowledge Base article?
Tiny Links to Answers pages are a good way to share content with other users. A shortened URL can be viewed for any page by accessing the page and clicking "..." in the upper right hand corner, clicking on Advanced Details, and then clicking on Page Information. The page that appears will have the Tiny Link that can be used.
As an editor of Answers, you can also copy the link of an article by going to the “Share” button in the upper right and clicking “Copy Link” in the bottom left of the window.
Tracker - How does an agent login to the customer portal?
After logging in as an agent, in your project, under Channels & People, click on Channels, select the Help Center, and click on Open. Then, in the upper right hand corner of the customer portal, you can click on Requests to view your requests.
Tracker - What can I do if a customer says they do not have permission to view a ticket in the customer portal?
If a customer is unable to view a ticket through the customer portal, an agent will need to change the Reporter or Participant field in Tracker from the email@example.com email alias to the firstname.lastname@example.org email format.
For example, for T. John McCune, if an alias such as email@example.com is used as the Reporter, he will NOT be able to view a ticket through the customer portal.
For T. John McCune to view a ticket through the customer portal, as you start typing his name, you will see different email addresses appearing. Select the one that shows his preferred name and last name, and that has the email address listed in the eServices@fredonia.edu format.
