New Community Forums Experience

We have likewise rolled out a new Slate Community platform. This platform is more than just a Community Forums for asking questions - it’s a community engagement platform, allowing users to connect with like-minded users, share ideas--not just questions--and stay informed.

New Support Desk Experience

We will also be implementing an updated ticket process to provide more clarity on items managed by the Support Desk.

These include:

  • Sensitive or confidential information

  • Critical issues that significantly impact vital processes

  • Assistance that requires the Support Desk's unique abilities, such as deleting objects not available through retention policies

Our goal in this updated process is to better define the role and expectations of the Support Desk. This builds on our commitment to the greater Slate Community.

To access the Support Desk and create a ticket:

  1. From the main navigation, select Database.

  2. Select Discover Slate.

  3. In Level III - Advanced Exploration, select Support Desk. A popup appears.

  4. Review the information in the popup to determine whether a Support Desk ticket is appropriate for your situation. If so, select Continue to Support.

  5. Select New Request.
