Companies

What are help desk companies?

The LiveAgent companies feature lets you gather and store information about companies and organizations in your help desk software. Whether you record basic contact information or delve deep with custom fields is entirely up to you.

For example, you can create custom contact fields containing the company’s customer ID, company anniversary, or other information. The possibilities are endless, so consider what company information is important to you, and don’t be afraid to get creative.

Companies

In addition to gathering information, company profiles are great for organizing your contacts. For example, if you work with multiple people from a single company, you can add their contact card to their company profile, so it’s easier for you to spot their tickets.

What kind of information can you store in the companies feature?

  • Company name
  • Company logo
  • Email addresses
  • Phone numbers
  • Contact groups
  • Timezone
  • Language
  • Note
  • Custom contact fields

Can a contact be affiliated with more than one company at a time?

Unfortunately, there is no way to add more than one company to a contact. However, if you want to change the company associated with the contact, you can delete the contact from the initial company’s contact list and add it to a new one.

How can I benefit from organizing contacts into companies?

Organizing contacts into companies can improve your workflow. Doing so enables you to view all tickets from the company’s contacts with a single click, making it easier to filter and find specific tickets. To see all tickets from a particular company, please follow these steps.

  1. Log in to LiveAgent.
  2. Click on Customers.
  3. Click on Companies.
  4. Click on Tickets.

Optional: To narrow the search even more, click on Custom Filter and select the ticket’s status, source, tags, or other custom filters.
