    Adding New Contact

    You can add contacts manually in SupportCenter Plus, associate them to accounts and provide login access permission. In addition, you can also configure the permission to view requests for the contact while accessing the Customer Portal.


    The new contact form can be accessed in two ways in the SupportCenter Plus application,

    1. Add New drop down

    2. Contacts tab

    Add New drop down


    The Add New drop down is a quick navigator to instantly access the New Contacts form from the home page.





    To configure the New Contact, go to Step 3 in Contacts tab.
