Zammad Administrator

Zammad is an open source helpdesk/support system and issue tracking system, which serves the coordination and answering of inquiries of any kind.

The application supports clients, agents and management equally intelligently in the structured capture, processing, documentation and evaluation of all internal and external matters.

This training is aimed at administrators who want to run Zammad and project managers who want to introduce Zammad.

We turn you into a professional regarding installation, configuration, use of power features (text building blocks, macros, etc.), integration of channels such as Twitter, Facebook, email, chat and email forms. We also familiarize you with the possibilities of user/rights management, backup and restore, scaling and high availability.

Wer möchte, reist bis 22 Uhr am Vortag an und nutzt den Abend bereits zum Fachsimpeln am Kamin oder im Park.

An den Kurstagen dann von 9-18 Uhr (mit 2 Kaffee- und 1 Mittagspause) etwa 60% Schulungen und 40% Übungen. Selbstverständlich arbeitet jeder Teilnehmer am von uns gestellten Notebook oft parallel zum Referenten mit.

Anschließend Abendessen und Angebote für Fachsimpeln, Ausflüge uvm. Wir schaffen eine Atmosphäre, in der Fachleute sich ungezwungen austauschen. Wer das nicht will, wird zu nichts gezwungen und findet auch jederzeit Ruhe.
