Feedback Management

The feedback feature of ZenTao Biz can be used to manage after-sales service and technical support for delivered products. For example. you can set the company internal staff like customer service staff as feedback users to submit customer issues and comments. It is also capable to set company external members such as A-parties and partners of custom projects as feedback users to submit product-related issues. For the submitted issues, R&D staff can directly reply, turn into requirements or turn into bugs.

1. Create Feedback User

Developer Interface: Go to "More" -- "Admin" -- "Member" -- "User" -- "Add User" and tick the box of "Feedback User". 

Feedback Interface: Go to "Admin" -- "Member" -- "Add User" and tick the box of "Feedback User".

2. Assign the Privilege to Feedback Users

Feedback users are in the "FEEDBACK" group by default. Go to "Admin" -- "Priv Group" -- "Manage Privilege by Group" to assign privilege.

The newly created feedback will be shown in the feedback list. It is available for you to edit, close, or delete the feedback. You can also search by different criteria and export the feedback.

There are 3 tags in the feedback list: unclosed, all, and public.
