Kaspersky
Solved

My Kaspersky , the support link no longer takes me to the previous configuration where I could even consult my previous requests.

Today when opening My Kaspersky I noticed that the support link no longer takes me to the previous configuration where I could even consult my previous requests.

Now the interface is much less friendly, I'm directed to the link: "https://support.kaspersky.com.br/b2c/PT"

What change was this?

Best regards

Hello @Flood and Flood's wife 

I called support in Brazil, where they informed me that there have been recent changes in this aspect and now the new page is similar to the one indicated in the link I provided.

 

Thanks again @Flood and Flood's wife :relaxed:

Hello @JPEKaspersky

Thank you for being proactive & the information:relaxed:  

We also just finished communicating with technical support → they have replicated the issue, the OLC agent said “usually it should open the tickets queue. But I've checked from my end it directs to support site.”


Kaspersky users (1) have to be able to access/update their existing incidents. (2) have to be able to create new incidents. (3) have to be able to close existing incidents.

They’re escalating the incident to Kaspersky HQ for an explanation. 

We will update this topic when they respond. 

Thank you:pray_tone3:

Good day, 

Kaspersky users (1) have to be able to access/update their existing incidents. (2) have to be able to create new incidents. (3) have to be able to close existing incidents.

The ‘Support’ tab now leads to https://support.kaspersky.com/b2c/ in all regions. 

You can update your existing incidents by replying to an email from Kaspersky Support and leaving the incident number in the subject. 

You can create new incidents via https://support.kaspersky.com/b2c/

You can close existing incidents by replying to an email from Kaspersky Support and asking to close the incident.

If I press submit a request it takes me back to my.kasperksy.com, which just shows my license and that’s all.

Hi @JonesL , 

What happens when you open https://support.kaspersky.com/b2c ? What is the URL that you get in the browser address bar? 

Where do you see the button ‘submit a request’? After you fill in the details of your request? Can you post a screenshot?

Good morning everybody.

Personally I think it was friendlier and simpler in the past, than now by following this link.

Hello @Igor Kurzin

Thank you for engaging. 

If we understand you correctly, what you’re saying, is Kaspersky have removed Incident management facility from (our) MyKaspersky accounts…?

Why are the solutions you’ve offered not Kaspersky customer focused? 

What happens if we don’t have an email for an existing INC, in a nutshell, no record of the case, we’d have to log another case = do you actually know how painful that is? 

No continuous history (in one place) of all comms related to a case, instead, with your solution, x number of emails, that have to be kept if we want/need to reference back. 

Why don’t Kaspersky’s Online Chat & Email online incident management forms have a field for an existing incident #? 

Why do Kaspersky customers get spammed with automated emails telling us we’ve raised a duplicate case, when we have no option but to raise a NEW case, every time we need to engage TS about an existing case? 

&

Using the link you’ve provided above https://support.kaspersky.com/b2c, there is no ‘submit a request’  button on the support page:

 

 

If Windows 11 is supported & according to Kaspersky TS it is, why is there no OS defined for it in the OLC & Email forms?

 

 

There’s so much more… 

Thank you:pray_tone3:

Not a good idea. I’ve received 20+ messages from support over the last 2 months for the same outstanding incident request. Not many of the support emails include any mention of what they are replying to, ie: what did I write to them in the 20++ messages that I have sent. Therefore, removing access to the complete incident info is a complete disaster. I hope this worrying change will get reversed in the not-too-distant future.

Hi Flood,

Yes.

We recommend to keep the email for an existing INC until the INC is closed. 

No continuous history (in one place) of all comms related to a case, instead, with your solution, x number of emails, that have to be kept if we want/need to reference back. 

We will take it as a suggestion.

Why don’t Kaspersky’s Online Chat & Email online incident management forms have a field for an existing incident #? 

We will take it as a suggestion. 

Currently you can tell the agent in the chat the INC number and the agent creates a record in the INC and includes the chat history.

Why do Kaspersky customers get spammed with automated emails telling us we’ve raised a duplicate case, when we have no option but to raise a NEW case, every time we need to engage TS about an existing case? 

You can use chat/phone/reply to email with INC number to engage TS about an existing case. 

Using the link you’ve provided above https://support.kaspersky.com/b2c, there is no ‘submit a request’  button on the support page:

Right, because you need to choose the communication channel and then click ‘Contact support’:
 

 

If Windows 11 is supported & according to Kaspersky TS it is, why is there no OS defined for it in the OLC & Email forms?

We will fix this, thanks for noting.

Hello @Igor Kurzin,

Thank you for responding.

Re “You can use chat/phone/reply to email with INC number to engage TS about an existing case.”, that involves having the INC in the first place. 

Re “We recommend to keep the email for an existing INC until the INC is closed.” It would have been good if Kaspersky told their customer base BEFORE making the MyKaspersky Incident management feature disappear into a black hole, at least we would have had an opportunity to manage the issue (from the customer’s perspective/needs/requirements), something Kaspersky seems to be oblivious too. 

Re “You can use chat/phone/reply to email with INC number to engage TS about an existing case.”

No Igor. If the customer does have the closed INC email, it’s not possible to email using the original INC in the subject field, bc, Kaspersky sends a bounce-back email stating the INC# is closed; so, that either means, raising a new chat, which requires the mind numbing process shown in the images; or, filling in almost the same to submit an email form or a phone call, have you actually gone thru the process of calling Kaspersky (as a customer)? 

Bottom line on chat backs = Kaspersky customers are forced to raise a NEW INC, each & every single time. 

Re our question: 

Why do Kaspersky customers get spammed with automated emails telling us we’ve raised a duplicate case, when we have no option but to raise a NEW case, every time we need to engage TS about an existing case? 

& your reply: “You can use chat/phone/reply to email with INC number to engage TS about an existing case.”

You do not understand, after Kaspersky’s processes have forced their customer’s to raise a new INC when there’s an existing INC, the customer receives a form email similar to the following “We can see you’ve raised a duplicate case for this matter. In order to process your request more effectively, we will close INC0000x and move the information it holds to INC0000y. If you receive a notification that your case was closed, don't worry, we are still working on your issue under INC0000y, blah, blah, blah….”, 

  1. Blaming the customer is poor form. 
  2. Such emails are spam. 
  3. After receiving the spam, the customer has to endure two further emails, an email stating the INC is closed & a survey email, inviting the customer to Rate the work of Technical Support. 

For online chat, this is what Kaspersky customers are forced to deal with: 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

From memory it was you who said “people HATE filling in forms!”, clearly no-one @ Kaspersky is listening.

What I do not like about Kaspersky e-mail support is that replies from Kaspersky are always new e-mail threads instead of replying to the old strang. This fills my inbox with new mail threads instead of them being sorted by conversation.

And as @Flood and Flood's wife  already wrote, there is no mention of what an INC is about in Kaspersky’s answer. So I found myself searching for the INC number my inbox several times, just to see what INC Kaspersky support is answering to.

You may wonder why I don’t know these things without search? Because I had multiple INCs open. ;)

23 e-mail threads/chains for 4 INC requests:

 

I have twenty separate threads for one, single, open request.

 

Incidently, the latest thread from Escalations reports: “ Please be advised that there is a problem with our product on Honor devices.“
