Sentry Desk User
Sentry Desk users are individuals designated by your organization, who are authorized to open tickets and interact with Sentry Desk about technical issues. The number of authorized users varies depending on the chosen support plan.
Jira Service Management
All support plans include full access to Jira Service Management to follow up on the progress of the resolution of your request and facilitate exchanges and notifications.
Request for Enhancement
All support plans allow you to submit a request to Sentry Software to add functionality or enhance performance beyond the specifications of the latest released version of the product.
For all support plans - Our technical Knowledge Base provides helpful articles, such as how-to and difficulties frequently encountered. These articles can help you solve problems by yourself and provide valuable information about making the most out of your product.
Screenshare sessions to share what you see on the screen with a Sentry Desk representative instead of going back and forth describing a technical issue. Note that only Hardware 2500 and Hardware Infinite support plans include screenshare sessions. On-demand sessions are available to Hardware 100 and Hardware 500 subscribers at an additional cost.
Slack/Microsoft Team Sessions
Hardware Infinite only - Slack or Teams sessions facilitate interactions with Sentry Desk via a messaging application (slack) and a collaborative platform (Microsoft Teams): quickly start a live chat with a representative, schedule online meeting, share documents, and files, etc.
You may log tickets 24/7 via Jira Service Management. However, Sentry Desk operates during America and Europe (EMEA) business hours. Note that user documentation and knowledge base articles are available at your discretion to answer general questions.
The time it takes to troubleshoot and resolve technical issues varies depending on the problem. Sentry Desk representatives are dedicated to responding to all issues raised by a customer in the shortest time frame.
