Problem types & Analysis provide a way to categorise your customer service ticket and improve your reporting. You can also set a default pipeline for each problem type. For example, the process to replace a product damaged on delivery could be quite different to sending an engineer to fix a vending machine at a customer’s office.

In the advanced mode you can configure up to 5 levels of problem types and 5 levels of analysis drop downs. You can decide which sub-types to show based on the previous type e.g. only show level 2 types "Late" & "Missed" if the level 1 type is set to "Delivery" etc.

  1. Open the Settings Centre by clicking on the settings icon in the bottom left-hand corner within the CRM.

2. Once within the Settings Centre, navigate to the Service section & scroll down until you reach the Problem Types configure option.

3. Select the Advanced option for the Problem Types & click the 'Click to Configure' link.
4. By clicking the click to configure link the configure problem analysis matrix window will open.
