As part of our ongoing process to improve the quality of support and customer service experience for our users, we will be changing the existing helpdesk ticketing system - Kayako to a brand new ticketing system - SmarterTrack at the date/time scheduled as above.

Upon the completion of the switchover, the following items will be changed in our new helpdesk ticketing system:

1. A new interface of Support Portal @ https://support.exabytes.com and Knowledgebase Category.
2. All of the previous announcement links sent prior to the helpdesk migration will become invalid. If you receive any of our announcements for any scheduled server or network maintenance from 06 July 2009 until 25 July 2009, please visit https://support.exabytes.com to get the latest updates on the scheduled maintenance.
3. All Knowledgebase URLs which were provided by our staff replies prior to this will become invalid as well as to the change of the URL at the new ticketing system.
4. Download Section will be unavailable upon the completion of helpdesk changeover.
5. Video Tutorials and Security Portal section will remain available.
6. All previously submitted ticket history will continue to be available in the new ticketing system.
7. The new system will change the ticketing ID to a new format. All previously ticket ID in Kayako system will be stored as a custom field in the new system that allows us to retrieve the pass conversation history. Your reply to the same ticket ID will reach our system with a new ticket ID.

During the upgrade window, we will disable access to our existing helpdesk portal as to convert the latest database data to the new helpdesk system.
