How to Share an Issue via Email

Issues may come in that an Agent cannot solve without input from your Dev or Engineer Team. In order to troubleshoot, your Developer may require additional information which lives only in the “View More Device Data” section of your Admin Dashboard. Previously, in order to obtain this information they would need their own Dashboard login or would end up using an Agents login to access detailed ticket information.

Helpshift’s new Agent Dashboard feature “Share Issue” provides you with an easy way to export a ticket out of Helpshift. By Sharing an Issue, you can now pass the Issue transcript combined with Device Data, Custom Meta Data and Debug Logs to your Developers via email.

As soon as your Developers receive the email they can begin the troubleshooting process and help find a resolution for your User.

How to Share an Issue:

1. On the Issue Detail Page, Click on the “Share issue” link
