Announcing Idalko’s New Service Desk

As a fast-growing company, Idalko among many other companies tries its hardest to provide the customers with the best service possible. This service includes support along the way, and what would be more efficient than a user-friendly service desk where the customer can track their requests and find the answers to their questions?

This has been something we haven’t had the opportunity to touch for the past years due to our extensive growth. But the COVID-19 pandemic, regardless of its downsides, has finally provided the chance for us to dedicate some time to our own systems. Needless to say, the customer service was a priority for us.

So here we are! We’ve finally revamped the service desk for our Licensing, Consultancy, and Managed Services customers to make it a one-stop-shop for all their questions. So if you handle Jira support, consultancy, licenses, or have a managed services contract with us, keep on reading.

In the old version, the customer could only get help through the support portal by typing in a question or by contacting the support via email, which was honestly not the quickest way to resolve the probable issues.

In the new version of Idalko service desk, we’ve made use of various Atlassian marketplace apps to facilitate access for our customers and to make their experience as pleasant as possible:

  • Insight – Asset Management for managing the database of licenses, consultancy projects, managed hosting, and managed services, all linked to companies, and contact persons
  • Refined Themes for the look and feel
  • Table Grid Next Generation to facilitate data entry and data selection in the portal
  • ScriptRunner and Extensions for Jira Service Desk for some behind-the-scenes logic

First, let’s see how it looks:

Welcome to the Service Desk

Once you are logged in to your account at Idalko, the welcome screen will pop up, offering you a variety of options to choose from. Here you can first select your language, English or French, in the top right corner of the page.

The welcome screen provides access to:

  • the knowledge base via the search option
  • an overview of the current licenses
  • the various request types
  • your open issues

The knowledge base will help you find any questions you might have based on the frequently asked questions. So it will gradually be updated, and more answers are going to be added.

Handling our customers’ licenses is another important support we provide and thanks to the new service desk, it’s now much easier to trace the licenses and submit requests accordingly. You can also track the requests on the welcome page as you have an overview of them all and can see what status each has. So if you raise a ticket, for instance, you can easily follow up and make sure the issue is being taken care of. And this is all done via the portal without the need to get in contact with the support. Awesome, right?service desk welcome screen

You can choose a category from the left side of the screen and request support for Licensing, Managed Services, and Consultancy. We’ll now take a look at each.


Our new service desk will help you keep track of all your licenses, the status, and the workflow the tickets go through from being raised to being resolved. You can either go to our portal or you can check out your license status on the Atlassian Marketplace as we get the data directly from there.

New licenses

You can request new licenses by filling in the Table Grid with the Product, Hosting option, and user tier.

For all license requests, we need technical contact and a company to which the product will be licensed. You can pick between a 1-year or a 2-year license.request new license

License Update or Renewal
