Tender Support

Get to know Tender Support

You might be inclined to share your support email address, but you'd be better off letting your Tender Support center work its own magic. When a customer goes looking for help, they'll be able to see your documentation and start a new discussion. By default, new support inquires are public, helping keep the discussions friendly and letting you answer each question only once. The first time someone asks a common question, it'll be turned into a new discussion page complete with your reply, ready to help other customers when they need help.

Customers can choose instead to send you a private message if they want, but Tender Support will still keep trying to help automatically. It'll scan the email message, and automatically reply with links to relevant support articles. That way, only the most unique support tickets should make their way through to your email queue—the rest should be handled automatically.

Private messages and public forum replies both have the same design, for your team and for users, so you'll feel equally at home in either one. You can even install a plugin on your site that automatically sends customer info across to the support center, so they don't have to create a new account to see their replies or join in forum discussions.

Even with Tender Support's automation, you'll still end up needing to answer some questions. Customers will uncover new bugs, ask for new features, and bring up other ideas you'll want to address. That's where Tender's integration with Lighthouse and GitHub come in. You can link any customer emails with the same bug to tickets in your development apps, create new issues, and automatically update customers or ask them for more info as you work on solving the bug.

Even while you're working on fixing bugs users report, it can be easy to let support tickets get lost in the clutter and forget to followup back up. Tender has your back there, too, with reminders about stale tickets that never got resolved. Whether they're in emails or public forum discussions, it'll make sure you solve every case.

If you're looking for a tool to make it easy to support your users in a public forum, Tender Support is great tool to have. It emphasizes public support so you'll never have to answer the same question twice, and helps make sure you solve every issue your users uncover.
