I Am Getting "We Are Sorry But You Are Not Permitted To Log Into This Site"
When logging into Seamlessdesk you may receive a message that states "We are sorry but you are not permitted to log into this site. If you feel this is an error please contact us."
The reason you may receive this message is that your account has been banned and you are not permitted to log into the site with this email anymore. While very few users will ever see this message here are some of the reasons this may happen to your account.
An administrator in your organization reported your account as spammy and marked it.
Too many spammy types, tickets were submitted from your email address and our automated scripts picked it up.
Regardless of the reason why it was spammed, there may be a chance this was a mistake. Because we do not take spam lightly here at Seamlessdesk to resolve the issue you may do one of the following to try and get your account reactivated.
Contact your Administrator and ask them to unban your account.
If Step #1 does not work then you may contact us directly at email@example.com and we will review your request and see if we can work to un-ban your account.
Please be advised that we will rarely contradict your local organization's administrator in this decision. If we contact them and they wish for your account to remain banned we will leave it alone.
Because once your account is banned you may not log into our site globally with the banned email address. In some cases, you may move to a new company which uses Seamlessdesk as well and would result in you not being able to log in if you are using the same email address. We suggest you create a new account and use a different email.
When Trying To Log In I Get An "IP Blocked" Message
One of the security features that can be set with any organization is the ability for the administrator to only permit users to log into Seamlessdesk portal from a specified IP range in which they set.
This setting is a security feature which (if set) can allow agents to only log into the site from their local area network. Sometimes administrators only want clients to be able to access this from their work location.
If you received this message then this setting is in place.
I Keep Getting A "Username Or Password Incorrect" When Trying To Log In
When trying to log into Seamlessdesk and you keep receiving a message that says "Username or password incorrect" then one of the two of the following are incorrect.
Sometimes we notice that users will change their password and then forget what it is or maybe you changed your password to something and you thought it was different. Either way, it can be a pain, but we have a self-service option for you to help you get logged into our site.
Forgot your password? At the login screen, you will find a link labeled "forgot your password?" Simply click on this link and enter your email that you used to sign up with our site. When you submit it we will send you a link to help you create a new password. We encrypted all passwords so good that even we can't break them so you will always have to change your password.
Why Do I Seem To Always Be Logged Into Seamlessdesk Even After Weeks?

Account Already Exists But I Never Created An Account
If you find yourself trying to create an account for the first time and for some reason you are receiving a message telling you that you already have an account with us there are two possible reasons for this.
You submitted a ticket in the past through one of our other portals such as Email, Twitter or Facebook. In some cases, you may have submitted a ticket through a web portal where you were not required to create an account to do so.
Someone else created an account with your email address.
Account creation automation
When you submit a ticket with one of the portals that do not require you to create an account with us then we will create an account for you automatically under your email address. If you need to gain access to this account all you have to do is click the "forgot password?" link located on the login page and enter your email. We will send a password reset link back to you so that you make create your new password and gain access.
Someone else created an account
If someone else created an account no worries. Since we use confirmation in order to create an account and they did not have access to your email address then there would be no damage.
If you would like to gain access to your account you can simply use our "forgot password?" feature and we can reset your password for you so that you may gain access.
Why Do I See User Accounts Marked As Inactive When I Browse Users?
In the scenario where you find accounts that are not active but are somehow submitting tickets this is happening because you are using different portals to receive tickets other than the basic web portal. You do have the option with your web portal to allow users to submit tickets without needing an account, this would also create inactive accounts since the user does not have to signup in order to submit the ticket.
For instance when you enable email based tickets then our system will automatically create an account for that particular email address when it finds it. We will generate a random encrypted password for that user and mark the account as inactive. This will also be the case for our Twitter and Facebook portals.
When the account is inactive is just means that the user has an account but has never logged into Seamlessdesk with that account. If you want an inactive user to have an account the easiest thing you can do is direct them to the "forgot password?" link and they can change their password on their own and gain access to the site.
Another way you can make a user as active is by browsing user's and going to the user's profile, then clicking "Edit" and click the button on the top "Make active" and that will do it. You also have the option to send an email to that user when you mark it as active so that the user is aware of this and can log into their account.
