  • You have purchased Remedyforce. 
  • The Remedyforce Administrator check box is selected on the user record of the Remedyforce administrator who has access to the Remedyforce Administration tab.
  • The email address of the Remedyforce administrator is associated with the company’s Support ID, and the administrator has the right to create cases on behalf of the company. 

If these conditions are met and a Remedyforce Support agent is available, the administrator will see the Chat with Remedyforce Support link on the Remedyforce Administration tab that they can use to initiate a live chat.

In case the Remedyforce Support agent is not available, the administrator will see the Remedyforce Support Unavailable link.

If the administrator’s email address is not associated with a Support ID or the administrator is not allowed to open cases on behalf of the company, then the administrator will see the Subscribe to Remedyforce Support link. Clicking this link opens the BMC Support web page where the administrator needs to register and provide the Support ID.
