Viewing Instance Legacy Tickets (Created Before July 31, 2023)
Outreach admins who are Support Portal super users are able to view all tickets for the instance(s) associated with their Outreach and Support Portal login.
On July 31, 2023, Outreach Support implemented improvements to our systems to ensure better account data alignment and reduce user effort in opening and managing help tickets. As a result of these changes, super users will no longer see instance tickets closed before 7/31/23 that they themselves did not originally submit.
These Legacy Tickets are being retained in our systems and may be requested for admin review and preservation. To submit a request, admins may open a Technical Support ticket with subject Retrieve Legacy Ticket Data for [Org Name]. A .CSV file with the ticket information will be provided within 10 business days.
