When do I have to stop using the Nimsoft sites for support cases?

You will still be able to log into support.nimsoft.com and na4.salesforce.com, but you will be limited to read access on your existing cases.  In order to update existing open cases or open new cases for Nimsoft products, you will need to use support.ca.com.

What if I still have an open ticket on support.nimsoft.com?

During the transition to the new platform in November 2015, each open case in the old SFDC platform were summarized.  Subsequently, a new ticket was opened in the new platform, with a reference to the SFDC ticket number, and summary added.  If you search on the old case number within the new Service Cloud platform, you will find any case that has a reference to the old case number in it. You may review the information in the new case number, or continue to work it if it is still in an open status.

How long do I have access to the information on support.nimsoft.com?

You will have access to the Nimsoft sites until they are decommissioned.  Decommission date is TBD.

How do I login to support.ca.com?
