Rally Support Manager

Rally Support Manager provides organizations managing support cases in Salesforce Support and Services visibility into Rally defects and user stories that were initiated from customer reports. It also customizes release announcements to customers whose support cases were resolved in the Rally release being announced. When the integration is deployed, Rally users can view the specific customers that have reported Rally defects.

See the following for more information:

Rally Support Manager improves collaboration between development groups and customer support groups to accelerate the correction of customer-reported issues. Customer support staff can quickly submit defects reported by customers and communicate to customers the development status of these defects.

Rally Support Manager improves support responsiveness and increases customer satisfaction through case-to-defect lifecycle tracking. It gives support teams a 360-degree view of customer-reported bugs by tracking their development status and informing customers with tailored release announcements or self-service portal updates.

With Rally Support Manager, support staff can easily link customer cases to the development team’s defects managed in Rally. As development makes progress on correcting defects, Salesforce users can easily track the current status and expected delivery timeframe of the issues they care about.

Features and benefits

  • Look up defects. Support staff can quickly detect if development is already aware of bugs with search and match capabilities, reducing the creation of duplicates.
  • Submit defects. From Salesforce cases, enter defects directly into the development backlogs. An option to enter requirements in development backlogs is also available.
  • Track development progress. Support cases automatically reflect development status (defect status, priority, severity, resolution and target release).
  • Release announcements. Review all cases resolved in a release and quickly build mass emails that update each customer on status of their issues, and/or update their cases in the self-service portal.
  • Prioritize development backlogs Development teams can see which customers, and how many, are associated with each bug report.
