How to Access Support
PPO provides a comprehensive support portal that offers guides such as a full Knowledge Base of all PPO functionality and a Frequently Asked Questions portal. Users can also log ideas and submit tickets from this portal, while having full visibility of their existing tickets as well as previous tickets.
The Support Portal can be accessed by clicking on the Help icon (?) on the Main Menu.
Watch this short video explaining all components on the help menu:
Selecting the first icon (Support Portal) will take you to the full PPO Support Portal:
New or interested users can access extensive information on all PPO Functionality in the Frequently Asked Questions and the Knowledge Base. The Community section hosts the current ideas that have been logged by end users and users are also encouraged to log their ideas on additional functionality they would like to see in PPO.
The support portal home page also displays the up-time status of the PPO application as well as a quick link to the PPO blog.
