Third Party Contacts

How do you deal with 3rd parties ?

HP Autodesk Microsoft Google etc.

Do you add them as requester so you can escalate calls to them ?

Or do you just hold the contact info as a solution article ?

Just thinking of the workflow, you need to escalate a call to HP, and the agent picks HP from a drop down, can we show that contact info for them to call, email or link to their portal.

I set up "agentless" groups to track internally, with a Status option of "with third party".  I suppose it might be possible to have a Status of "With HP" and the customer side message give some basic contact details.

I've done a freshplug that sits besides the logging screen and ticket review screen.

<script type="text/javascript">

 var urlmenu = document.getElementById( 'menu1' );

 urlmenu.onchange = function() {

      window.open( this.options[ this.selectedIndex ].value );





Puts a list up, when the agent makes a choice, it opens a new window to the 3rd party portal.

Not perfect, as I'd also like it to display a text window with logon details, phone and email for them too.

But that's a bit beyond my skills !
