You don't only work at your desk anymore, but you also work on the go. That's why TOPdesk aims to offer a great mobile experience too. For the long term, we're working on having a completely responsive application that works well on all devices. Our aim is to support end users and operators/technicians on-the-go to make their daily work easier.
As an end user, the Self-Service Portal is the go-to place for all your service requests. Whether you want to use the track and trace functionality, request new hardware, or report an issue, you can do it all in the responsive portal.
The Self-Service portal has everything you would normally find in the end user portal, such as:
The Self-Service Portal is almost fully responsive to any kind of device. End users can easily access the Self-Service Portal by following their usual TOPdesk link. In the meantime, we're still working on some improvements.
Here are some examples of how we're improving the mobile experience for end users:
If you're working as an agent or operator, you want to be able to do your work on-the-go without any double administration or overly complicated interfaces. That’s why we're building a brand new operator app, designed to fulfill all your needs and help you complete your daily work no matter your location.
The aim of our operator app is to provide a simple task overview with enough information to successfully help you assist your end users on-site. The app will provide you with information on our basic process modules, such as Call Management, Change Management, and Operations Management.
If you're on SaaS, you already have access to the new app. For now, we offer basic functionalities, but we're adding new features to the app every week. We currently offer:
In Q1 of 2021, we'll be working on the following (in no specific order):
In 2021 you can expect:
If you have input for any of these features, please feel free to contact us via our feedback form.
We want to hear from you! We have ideas about what we should deliver next, but your input will help us prioritize features. Let us know in this form which features you need most!
How do I reach the operator app?
If you're on SaaS, you can already fully use the application by going to your TOPdesk SaaS environment and adding /services/navigation to your normal URL, for example: https://yoururl.topdesk.net/services/navigation
We'll make it more easily accessible soon.
What are the main differences between the new and old operator app?
The new version of TOPdesk Mobile is a progressive web app. You can log in and install TOPdesk Mobile more easily compared to the previous app. And since we'll only need to develop on one platform, you'll receive new features much more quickly.
The old app offers Operations Management as well as Incident Management. This functionality is planned for Q2 2021.
The old app doesn't support Change Management. Working on change activities is now supported. Follow progress on our roadmap here.
What will happen to the old operator app?
You'll be able to use the old app online until the new web app is mature enough to replace it. Follow the progress of the new TOPdesk Mobile via the TOPdesk Product Update emails, the roadmap, or this page.
When is the new TOPdesk Mobile for operators available?
It's already available to all SaaS users. The new app will also be available on the first VA release of 2021. We have released it to offer our VA customers the chance to give us feedback. We are aware that it lacks certain key-features so we advice to still work with the old app. Because the release cycle is quarterly on VA, it means small adjustments and improvements will take longer to publish.
Will I be able to work offline?
Eventually, yes. We're working on getting functionality out first. Later, you'll be able to use the operator app offline. We still need to do research on what features are needed exactly in offline modus, so feel free to leave your suggestions via the feedback form.
How does this progressive web app work?
You can navigate to the mobile link and install it on your mobile device. Android users will be prompted to install it, whereas iOS users will need to install it manually by using the “add to homescreen” functionality on your device.
Why is the app not available in the Google Play Store or the App Store?
Since our current app offers the possibility to install already, we have decided to prioritize adding more features to TOPdesk Mobile and making it available in the Google Play Store and App Store later, likely around Q2.
What can I expect next?
In Q1 we will work on improvements for the change activities as well some added features, such as improved dropdowns and the "invisible for caller" functionality. We are also planning work on search functing.
We expect to deliver the logging of new calls in Q2 as well. We'll regularly give updates on our product roadmap. If you're interested in specific updates, you can keep an eye on the following items:
