Combined FAQ/HelpDesk solutions
September 17, 2005 4:48 AM   Subscribe

I'm looking for a cheap/freeware combined FAQ/trouble ticket system, along the lines of RightNow or Fuze.

I'm sure they're both wonderful systems, I just don't think we can afford anything where the price isn't shown up front (if you have to ask... :). Bugzilla and such are also good, but I don't want people to be able to see everyone else's problems nor comment on them. I found this listing on the PHP resource index but they mostly seem to be just a knowledgebase or a trouble ticket system, plus it's difficult to get an idea of how well they work from a quick demo.

Best answer: I asked this a few months back.

For what it's worth I've used FogBugz for bugtracking, and I've no doubt it would make a great ticketer. I refuse to buy it on principle (per-seat licensing for a web app), but you should probably check it out.

maybe faq-o-matic?

Otherwise I'd peruse hotscripts for something.

I used to use Request Tracker. Old versions of it were really annoying, but it has gotten a lot better. I wish my current employer would let me use this, instead of the abomination we are rolling out soon.

The documentation management side of Request Tracker is RTFM.

There's always the wiki option for doco, too.

Have you seen PerlDesk? It used to be Open Source, maybe there is a fork out there. Their small-biz version costs $100.
