Had a very difficult situation with Freshdesk when thousands of spam tickets were created. This same situation affected hundreds of their customers. It was obviously difficult for them to address all the problems at once, but they did and did so in a timely manner.

Despite using the free plan, we've always had prompt responses whenever we contacted Freshdesk support. The assistance has always been professional and we've never felt like we were given less attention because we weren't a paying customer.

We contacted Freshdesk a total of two times and both interactions were the epitome of excellent customer service. They were accommodating, understood our questions, gave us the exact answers that we were looking for, and were overall pleasant.

The support from the Freshdesk team is great. They try to resolve the issue ticket within 12 hours and help you with an accurate reply that how much time it will take to finally get it resolved. Also, the chat team helped me a lot many times with small-small doubts I have while creating rules for ticket bifurcation.

While I haven't personally interacted with support from FreshDesk, those on my team have always gotten their issues resolved quickly and relatively easily. In addition to that, the knowledge base they provide is always helpful to start solving problems big and small. My team has never had a single complaint.

Because I never worked with a company that responds so quickly to their customer! They are always fast at responding and very open to new ideas and quickly turning them around to include them in future releases. They walk us through when we need assistance and are very good at communicating. Overall top notch support!

Freshdesk may have some good features. But the support provided is the worst I have ever seen from a company. We are 12 days out with no way to use the software. All you get is different Level 1 Technicians who recommend the same thing over and over again (e.g. clear cache). There is no way for us to use the software and no one to fix it. IMO support is the number one thing to look for when adopting a product in a corporate environment. Therefore, even though good features exist, the support is non-existent so this product should never be used by any corporate entity.

I would like to rate 9 out of 10 for its overall support because Freshdesk allows us to keep track of the raised tickets, assign multiple recipients. Also, we can merge the related tickets as one. Assigning public/private notes also helps to comment [on] related information. As a support desk, it has fully satisfied us with its features and customizable capability.

The main thing about Freshdesk user service is that once a request has been made for information about a feature of the platform, the support team responds to tickets quickly, within a day of writing and submitting them, with information that is concise enough so that there is no need to ask for help on the same topic again.

Freshdesk customer support is available on phone, email, live support and tickets. They are knowledgeable and ready to help their users solve any issues. They have a Video Library on their website with videos that are categorized under different playlists to help users on a daily basis. All information a user needs to get started with Freshdesk is available online.

Most of the time they returned our requests quickly and often they got very detailed and into the problem with us which was refreshing. So many companies would hide behind their tickets but Freshdesk was a bit of fresh air as they routinely explained in detail their limitations and issues which helped us understand things better and plan for how to use the product best.
