Hello,
I found this article in the KB:
https://www.lansweeper.com/knowledgebase/hiding-the-helpdesk-menu/
And after changing that setting, the helpdesk tab did disappear, but only for users with permission to view assets and above(asset managers, administrators). Base level users when visiting the site still have the ability to submit tickets and view tickets they have submitted.

After it failed to remove the option I did also try both clearing my browser cache and restarting the lansweeper and IS Express services, but to no avail.

Has anyone else come across this or have any suggestions on what I'm missing?

edit: v. 7.0.110.2

"If your company has no immediate need for a help desk, it is possible to hide this menu."

I always understood it as 'if you don't use the helpdesk, you can hide the menu option' not that you can hide the option if you use it.

Correct. It's designed to hide the option, not to disable the functionality. If you do not want people submitting tickets you'll have to remove their access to Lansweeper. You can find more info on that here: https://www.lansweeper.c...cess-to-the-web-console/

I may have worded it poorly, but what I am trying to do is use the news page and knowledge base without the ticketing system. I would think that hiding the helpdesk menu should hide it everywhere?

edit: attached is a picture of what a regular user would see. We would want to hide the 'Helpdesk' and 'My Tickets' sections, while still allowing them to see the knowledgebase and news sections.
