There are 2 ways of submitting cases to support: by email, or using the online portal.

  • Email - Sending email to your support alias (i.e. not only creates a support case, it also creates a user in Zendesk.

    If you are happy managing your cases by email, there is no need to register. Any user in your organisation can email us to open a ticket.

  • Portal - if you wish to submit/manage cases via the support portal, you must register and/or get a password. 


Accessing the Zendesk portal

  1. Go to AppDirect Support and click sign in.

  2. If you have previously communicated with AppDirect Support by email, then you're already provisioned in Zendesk, so select Get a password.
    If you have never emailed us, create a user and password using Sign up.

  3. Follow the instructions to register and/or obtain your password.

  4. Once complete, return to AppDirect Support and sign in.
