As part of our continuous endeavor to support and enable digital transformations for customers, Microsoft is announcing the availability of support ticketing creation for Surface devices via the Surface Management Portal. This feature is now available to Surface commercial customers.
Surface Management Portal provides a centralized solution for IT admins to self-serve, manage, and monitor Surface devices within an organization’s tenant. As a single lens for end-to-end visibility of managed Surface devices, our support ticketing feature will enable customers to easily create and stay updated on the progress of their support engagements. For more information on the Surface Management Portal in general, refer to our video overview, Manage All Your Surface Devices in a Single Portal - Microsoft Endpoint Manager. You can find the Surface Management Portal in Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center, All services > All > Surface Management Portal.
