Granting Support Access

In this article you will learn how to grant access to the WhosOnLocation Support Team to your account.

Before You Grant Us Access

Granting Access does not mean that a WhosOnLocation Customer support team member will contact you to determine if you have an issue. Our team do not actively scan the customer list looking for customers who have granted us access.

The recommended process if you have a problem is to: 

1. First use the Helpdesk to see if there is a topic or guide that addresses your specific problem.

2. If the Helpdesk cannot solve your problem then select Submit a Request located in the upper toolbar of the Helpdesk.

3. The Submit a Request function will ask you for your email address and to explain what your problem is. When you select Submit at the bottom of the Submit a Request screen our team will be notified of your Request immediately.

4. You will automatically receive a Request Acknowledgement – so check your email.

5. In normal operating circumstances we will address your request within an hour.

6. As part of our investigations into your problem we may need to access your account. Only in these circumstances would we contact you over the phone and request that you Grant Support Access to our team.
