LDAP Integration & Web Portal Ticket for End User

Recommended Posts

My company has been testing out PSA/RMM systems for about a year now. Hands down Pulseway has been the BEST, however it's looking likely we are NOT going to be using PW because you don't have 2 simple features MOST others have. LDAP Integration is CRITICAL for our end users & security. We want to seriously "DUMB IT DOWN" for them. Emails DO NOT ACCOMPLISH THIS. On a constant basis no matter how much training they (end Users) get, they more often than not send emails like "It doesn't work." or "I got an error." 

Asking for further details beyond that kinda makes me wish I had become a dentist cause pulling teeth would probably be easier. For the same reason as stated above a web based ticket portal where we can control the "REQUIRED" fields would be amazing. This would give us the information we need to triage the incident and respond appropriately. We are looking for a system that makes us pro-active not re-active. Furthermore with the above LDAP integration some fields can be automatically populated like workstation and User (cause yes some people don't know how to spell their own name at times). With this Web Portal Ticket System we can make an easy button or desktop icon they can get right to without having to hunt for it. 

In summery:  LDAP Integration and Web Based Ticket Portal. This could have made us customers for a very long time.

LDAP integration is on our todo list but we don't have any ETAs for it as it's not part of our immediate roadmap.

Regarding web based ticketing system - Have you tried to use the Pulseway PSA? Please check this PSA demo.

PSA doesn't have a ticketing system for the EU. A simple web page the EU can pull up or a combination of keyboard keys, like Ctrl+F12 for example, to bring up a page with a screenshot of their desktop to show the error they (the end user) are dealing with. You have that text box for the active agent, but most end users don't even know there is a clock in the corner let alone how to see/get to the active agent. Also that agent isn't available in Windows 8.1. So that eliminates a point of contact for our EU's. 

Furthermore our EU's are simple. So when it comes to filing out a SR (Service Request) they won't put in any details unless forced to. With that above stated agent box... we would have 30 - 50 tickets with, "it doesn't work" for the SR. We need to have a way to force them to give us information. Like Mandatory Fields. So we know what software, ERP, workstation, server, process, etc.and who is making this SR (where LDAP comes in). Also having auto screenshots makes this even better (cause most EU's don't know how to take one on a desktop). 

Pulseway PSA is clunky and not modular on top of this. Now it's not an issue to work around, however, no EU submitted ticketing it's kinda useless. Attached is a sample of a system we are using. I have removed their names so no promotion for them.

      We have a dedicated controller at Pulseway. We have a couple of Windows Servers but one has showed itself as offline since yesterday.
      The Windows Server itself is up and running fine and the Pulseway service is running. I have tried this:
      Restart Pulseway Service (No problems)
      Unregister and Reregister System (Working Fine)
      Rebooted the server
      Communicationtest "telnet xxxx.pulseway.com 443" answering like it should
      Uninstalled Pulseway and removed the registry key "ComputerIdentifier" then reinstalled
      Uninstalled Pulseway again and removed the whole Hive "MMSOFT Design" from registry and reinstalled Pulseway.
      Seems like no matter what I do the server is Offline in Pulseway controller at web and IOS.
      Do you have any suggestions to point me in the right direction?

      It would be nice if we also can monitor/manage the smart devices like Android and IOS.

      Hello and TYIA~
      I am trying to put together a work flow that will hold a ticket for 7-days once we believe it is complete.  Once assigned to a particular status, I would like the ticket to stay open for 7-days, then if there are no further updates, close itself.
      Does anyone have anything like this they wouldn't mind sharing?

      I swore I already created this feature req, but I can't find it anywhere here, so forgive me if this is duplicating. 
      I see OKTA was added as a SSO option with latest PSA release. Is there anything on roadmap for O365/Azure SSO? I want to drive clients' users to the customer portal, but they are just not going to remember another password. It needs to have O365 authentication.  

      This is having a major productivity impact on opened service tickets, because otherwise users just email help ticket requests and often do not provide all needed information. Another option to to create some sort of client specific Submit help ticket webpage that has all required fields.  

      For other PSA users out there, how to you handle user submitted help tickets and proper data collection for the help ticket?

      I have a support ticket where I asked this question and got a reply that it could be looked at in the future. Just placing it here to ensure it gets put on Feature request list and so others can comment.
      When sales tax is added to invoice in PSA then synced to Quickbooks via PSA QB SYNC, it defaults to sales tax code G. In Canada, G is GST @ 5% by default (and correctly so) out of the box. H is for HST is dependent on province. In my case, HST at 13% is setup in PSA, but when the invoice syncs over to Quickbooks, it imports/syncs as tax code G (at 5%). I have to edit EVERY SINGLE INVOICE.I just need to tell PSA to use a defined sales tax code when syncing to QB.  
      I would consider this more of a bug than a feature. What's the point of automation if you have to go back and edit everything?  
      Connected...I sync invoices over to QB so I can use my custom invoice template. Its been said elsewhere, but we REALLY need a way to edit/create our own HIGH QUALITY professional and modern looking invoices in PSA. No offense, but the few invoice templates that exist look horrible.

      As always, I appreciate all you guys are doing and know you are swamped with current RD and RMM centralized rollout. Keep up the good work!
