Reopening Closed Issues and Complaints
Sometimes, an issue or complaint may need to be reopened if it wasn’t resolved to satisfaction or if new factors have come to light. OctopusPro has a dedicated system in place to manage such scenarios, ensuring your clients are satisfied with your response. This guide provides detailed instructions on how to reopen a closed issue or complaint in OctopusPro.
How to Reopen a Closed Issue or Complaint
Reopening a Complaint from the Complaint Overview
- Navigate to the “Complaint Overview” page.
- Locate the complaint that you want to reopen.
- Click on the “Actions” button associated with the complaint.
- From the dropdown menu, select “Reopen”. This will open a new form.
- In the form, you will be asked to provide a reason for reopening the complaint. It is essential to detail why the complaint is being reopened to ensure clarity and efficient resolution. You can also upload an image if it supports your explanation.

Reopening a Complaint from the Complaint Details Page

Reasons and Examples for Reopening Complaints
Reopening a complaint might be necessary in various situations:
- Incomplete Resolution: If the solution provided did not fully resolve the customer’s issue, the complaint can be reopened. For example, if a fieldworker was sent to fix a broken appliance and it broke down again shortly after, the initial complaint can be reopened.
- New Information: If new information surfaces that requires further investigation or changes the nature of the complaint, it may need to be reopened. An example could be a customer who initially complained about a late delivery, but later found that some items were missing when the delivery finally arrived.
