Here is some feedback about the beta customer portal.
- if a customer tries to write a response for a ticket that has not first been responded to by a service rep, they get an error, "there was an error sending your message".
- the customer responses are not visible in the ticket activity feed for the service rep, so we are not able to see what they wrote! - responses by email created in one ticket by the service rep are visible in all of the tickets where that customer contact is associated, making it impossible to know which ticket the response is for.
At this point, the portal isn't usable by our team for the main reason that it doesn't seem to integrate with the ticket pipeline. I would love to use it if these issues are addressed!

Thank you for this feedback - I'm going to reach out to the team to pass this information regarding the beta

Wanted to let you know that the team said they're looking at the first issue as well as the issue of the tickets not appearing in the ticket activity feed. For the last issue, could you clarify exactly what's happening? Do you have a specific example you could share?

Hi @TiphaineCuisset ,
Thanks! I'm attaching some screenshots showing what's happening with the activity feed.
customer submits a service ticket
service ticket shows up in the ticket pipeline in hubspot service
service rep replies to the ticket with an email
customer logs into customer portal and opens ticket
customer sees service rep reply, and replies to the ticket through the customer portal
the reply from the customer does NOT show up in the ticket activity feed, or the contact record, in hubspot.

Thank you for that!
Apologies if I wasn't clear enough - I meant to say this specific issue is being looked at by the team to see what they can do - but we wanted more details on your last issue, when you say "responses by email created in one ticket by the service rep are visible in all of the tickets where that customer contact is associated, making it impossible to know which ticket the response is for." - could you explain it the same way with screenshots and examples?

Thank you for your reply!
For this new issue that doesn't seem expected behaviour at this stage - I would recommend connecting with HubSpot Technical Support, as Support is included in your subscription and they will be able to provide real-time assistance for this matter, where you are able to share screenshots and specific examples about this.

If may I help @stykujason at his second point:
When a customer send us a message using the portal, this message can't be seen at the tiquete's informations screen, just at the "Inbox".
So, its hard for us to know that the customer had sent, and the tiquete are not folowing the flows and rules created before.
An exemple: https://app.hubspot.com/contacts/20584448/ticket/651740265/
- The customer sent us a message:
- The ticket hasn't any information about:
- The message just appears on Inbox:
