Manage Support Buttons

Support Buttons allow customers to initiate a support session to their assigned support team, enter a session key, or submit an issue to a support queue. Deployed Support Buttons can be managed from the Support Button management interface. Note that a mass-deployed Support Button installed in system-wide mode must be removed using Add/Remove Programs or system management tools.
