Here are the main features of SimpleDesk 2.0 "Anatidae". For a full list and descriptions of each feature, please refer to our website.

(And quite a bit more besides.)

Where can I get support?
In order to keep all support request gathered in one place, which ensures the best support we can give, we ask that any issues are posted on our community forum.

Who are The SimpleDesk Team?
SimpleDesk traces its roots back to the end of 2009 when a group of Customizers from the SMF Team agreed to collaborate on a mod for SMF. It was only one of a few initial ideas, but it proved to be the most useful of that group. With numerous requests for helpdesk mods from the SMF Community and's own need for better helpdesk software, the development of SimpleDesk would benefit a large number of people. Thus, SimpleDesk was born with a strong mission and clear objectives.

Since then, more people - both members of the Simple Machines Team as well as regular community members and friends - became interested in the idea and were invited to our SimpleDesk team. We also have an entire team of beta testers who ensure that we are able to release a quality helpdesk to our users.
