How to Manage Organization on Accounts

Once a user has added you to their account as a ‘Manager’ — you’ll be allowed to manage their account as well as their helpdesk depending on whatever permissions were set when they sent you an invite to their account.

The new system allows for easier managing of customer accounts and/or accounts that you may operate as a third party individual (developer, for example).

Accessing Managed Accounts

In order to access one of the accounts you’ve been invited to manage, you need to access the ‘Managed Accounts’ dashboard.

At the top right, click “Managers” from your dashboard

From here, you’ll have a left-hand sidebar with the following options:

  • Invited Managers
  • Managed Accounts
  • <- Return to Dashboard

We’ll want to click “Managed Accounts” which will bring you to a list of accounts you’ve been invited to manage.

Choose which account you want to access and it’ll drop you into their My KnownHost account. Within here, you can manage their account as they’ve assigned you permissions to do so. When you’re done managing their account, you’ll have the following message at the bottom:

“You are currently managing an account that has invited you to manage it. Switch back to my account

Clicking “Switch back to my account” will return you to your My KnownHost account.

Accessing Managed Accounts Helpdesk

In order to access your managed accounts support tickets, you’ll need to access their helpdesk. When you’re on your dashboard there will be a right hand side bar that has several options, the two helpdesk ones are:

  • Helpdesk
  • Managed Accounts Helpdesk

You’ll want to click the “Managed Accounts Helpdesk” on the right hand side in order to access your managed accounts tickets. When you do so, you’ll see the following page with your managed accounts listed.

You can then view their tickets by clicking “View” on the user you wish to manage. From here you can perform the following:

  • Read open tickets
  • Read closed tickets
  • Reply to open tickets
  • Submit new tickets

When done managing this users helpdesk, you can click “Back to Accounts” to return to your managed accounts helpdesk listing to either manage another accounts helpdesk that you have access too or return to the dashboard.
