As far as I can tell the only way to access your support tickets is to enter a new one, which brings up a list of all support tickets submitted, unless you know the url of your support ticket and its number, which naturally you normally don't.

Am I right about this, or is there some way of accessing them on the site? I went through "support" several times and couldn't find one.

If there isn't, is there a good reason for this? otherwise I would suggest it is changed. In my case I haven't been receiuving email from proz for a while, so i didn't realize that a request had been answered several months ago.

Confirmation e-mail? Jul 21, 2005

Hi William,
As far as I can tell the only way to access your support tickets is to enter a new one, which brings up a list of all support tickets submitted, unless you know the url of your support ticket and its number, which naturally you normally don't.

Why not? Right after submitting a Support Request, you will get a confirmation e-mail containing a link to your ticket. Didn't you get one?

Best regards,
Ralf

Hi William Jul 21, 2005

The link to the tickets is quite simple:
http://www.proz.com/tickets

Hopefully, it will be included into the menus soon

HTH,
Natalia

Hi,
I had the same problem a little while ago - not being able to find my ticket. The issue in my case was in fact that ProZ email wasn't arriving, so the notification email was as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike

Additionally, many people (including me), will see an automatically generated message like that and think "OK, they've got it then" and delete it without opening.

It's not (IMHO) a problem to rank with the issue of "site abuse", but a menu option somewhere to lead to an individual's tickets would undoubtedly be useful.

exactly right Charlie - if it's an email problem (which are common) you won't get an email confirmation. Then the only way to do it is to generate a new ticket, so that you can access the old ones, unless as I say you have taken note of the url proz.com/tickets...so why not have a menu option.
