Building a Social CRM Help Desk with Active Social

by Will M on 17 Feb 2010 10:21 AM

By Friday we will change our current help desk system to a new system based upon Active Social.  The new system will leverage the Messaging API and serve as an example of how you can build custom applications within Active Social.  Here are a few of the initial features:
  • Allow registered users to initiate various inquiries
    • Support Tickets
    • License Reset
    • Pre-Sales Questions
    • General Questions
  • Inquiries will be sent to a group (Active Modules Staff) using the Messaging API.
  • User that originally submitted request will be instantly updated using the built in Notifications functionality.
  • Ability to create a support ticket from an existing forum post.
  • Staff will have one click access to user history, activity and account details.
If you have ever used getsatisfaction.com or uservoice.com you will have a pretty good idea of the direction we are heading.  We plan to use this internally for several weeks before we make it available as an add-on.  Any feedback you have will be greatly appreciated.

    So does this mean when you implement this we should all put in a support ticket to see how it works? :-)

    or will you add it to ActiveSocial.com so we can test it there?

    Hi Will,

    I am looking forward to use this add-on and replace Active Cases with this. Do you require some test users?

    It will be live on this site first. If support volume stays where it is now we will probably ask for a few people to create tickets.

    Everyone has their own set of needs right now. But I am hoping for AF5 and ActivePurchase Integration into AS. I guess time will tell.

    I personally have a good solution for Help Desk right now. BUT... it will be great to see how this serves as a way to build custom apps with the AS messaging API. I am sure this will start the emergence of AS as a development platform instead of just a DNN module. Well, it's not just a DNN module even now. You know what I mean.

    Will, any update on this topic. I know you just mentioned that you are doing an AF and AS patch first and then AP but active cases / this help desk system seems to have lost its place in the to do list again ?

    Will there be a discount to Active Cases owners, as I would really like to use Active Cases on 5.6 but I don't think I can :(
