In today’s blog post, we’ll be chatting about how you can lodge a ticket with Otto IT, making sure that your team can reach out for the support they need, when they need it.
How Can I Lodge a Ticket?
To make our IT support team as available as possible, we have 3 different ways you can lodge a ticket:
- By using our Otto Customer Portal application which you can find on your desktop
- By sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- By giving our Support Team a call on 1300 OTTO IT (1300 688 648)
How to Lodge a Ticket on the Otto Customer Portal
Apps are new, more convenient, and more efficient way of lodging a ticket, which is why we’ve developed our Customer Portal. This will have been installed on your PC/Laptop.
One great benefit of lodging ticket through the Customer Portal is that we will have the workstation ID straight away because it’s linked to your device. This is a great help for our team if we need to access the workstation remotely. You can also view tickets already submitted and even lodge things like New User Requests through this app.
The steps below outline the exact method of lodging a ticket via the Panel:
1. Access the portal
To get started using the Otto Customer Portal, locate this icon on your desktop:

4. Update a ticket
The view of a ticket shows previous tickets notes, the ticket number and the engineer assigned to your ticket, among other things. You can add your own reply to the ticket to add more information or request an update. Additionally, if your issue has been resolved on its own, you can choose Close Ticket and write a quick message explaining why the ticket is no longer required.
How to Lodge a Ticket via Email
This is the method that most people are familiar with – you send us an email and we take care of the rest. And once your ticket is lodged, we’ll send you regular updates on how we’re progressing. Here’s how to email our Support Team:
- Draft your email
Open a new blank draft email and enter the recipient address as: email@example.com
- Explain the issue
As with logging your ticket via IT Support panel, please give us as much information as possible about your issue. You can find the relevant information in the bullet points listed earlier in this guide.

Once you have finished drafting your email, it’s time for a quick review of the content to ensure no details/information were left out. Once you’re happy, hit send and you should receive a reply to notify you that we have received your ticket.
