After signing in company can create helpdesk projects — see pic 1.
Pic 1 — Create helpdesk project
Project name is used for searching project in customer area.
Display project name is used for displaying name of project in helpdesk projects list in all helpdesk accounts (company, customer, manager).
Customers link is a special link created for customers to add helpdesk project in their accounts automatically — it means that following that link customer adds company project in list of his helpdesk projects without need to search project.
Customers find helpdesk projects in their accounts and add tickets — after that helpdesk area in company account looks as follows — see pic 2.
Pic 2 — Tickets list
All tickets are divided in four categories.
First - email messages coming from unregistered users - check out email ticketing
Second - New - new tickets created by customers - they don't have manager (or company) who took these tickets to work with.
Third - Company - this category contains tickets which were taken by company account.
Fourth - Other - contains tickets which were taken by company managers.
Company can take ticket for surveillance by clicking red Take ticket button when viewing full ticket info - check out pic 4.
Current project is highlighted with red line at left side of national project name. Tickets with last customer answer are shown at the top of tickets list.
There are six signs attached to every ticket — see pic 3 — lets review it.

You can use Galmato to handle your emails as tickets.
For that purpose first of all you have to specify email address where you receive
emails from your customers on your
settings page -
check out pic 9 - fill Tickets email field with your email and press Save.
Pic 9 — Setting tickets email
Second step is to create forward from email specified to our email
which is defined under Address to forward email tickets to caption.
In this example case we have to create a forward
from firstname.lastname@example.org to
email@example.com to make email ticketing work.
Here's a good explanation how to do it with Gmail
After forward creation all emails coming to your tickets email will be displayed
in Email tab of your helpdesk main page.
Please keep in mind that
only emails from UNREGISTERED users go to abovementioned tab - if
customer email already registered then new ticket is being automatically created.
There's a list of customers emails received at pic 10.
Pic 10 — List of email messages
There are two options available for each message - first -
delete message (sign )
- and second - watching message (sign ).
After clicking at watch message you will see following
Pic 11 — Watching email
There are two options at this point - leave Create customer & ticket
checkbox checked and uncheck it. In first case when you write your answer and click
Answer button new customer account will be created as well as new ticket in current helpdesk
project (it will be stored in New tab) - customer will receive email with your answer and also password for his
new Galmato account. After ticket creation customer will receive emails every time new
reply is added to ticket by company or manager account.
If you uncheck Create customer & ticket check box - then email sender
will receive only your answer (as email) without customer account and ticket creation.
In both cases message will be automatically deleted.
You can delete message without sending answer emails to sender simply by clicking delete message sign.
