WordPress locks posts whenever they are accessed in order to prevent multiple users from accessing and modifying the post at the same time.
This can be a hindrance to a support organisation and therefore, sometimes, it is necessary to enable multiple people to access and work on a ticket at the same time.
The default configuration of KB Support enables you to assign a single agent to each ticket. However, assigning multiple agents to a ticket is also possible and can be of great value for a number of reasons including increasing support worker collaboration towards the resolution of a support case.
Enabling the sequential ticket numbers option ensures that all KBS tickets are in sequential order.
By default, the WordPress post ID will be used as ticket ID’s but this results in gaps within the number sequence due to the way in which WordPress works. For example, your first ticket may be assigned an ID of 100 but the next ticket may be 103. With sequential ticket numbers enabled you will ensure that an ID of 101 is assigned to the next ticket.
All too frequently, companies do not spend enough time thinking about what the aim of each knowledge base article is
A knowledge base article should serve to allow customers to help themselves when they have a question or do not understand how to achieve their goals with your product(s).
Similarly to the core KB Support plugin, and its extensions, Ratings and Satisfaction can be customised beyond the options that are available within settings.
This document, aimed at our more advanced user base, will detail some of the advanced customisation’s that can be achieved. As always, we highly recommend that any changes are implemented within your child theme to avoid being overwritten during future updates.
