The customer portal for Siebel eService for Communications, Media, and Energy is different from the customer portal for Siebel eService. For information about the portal that customers use to access Siebel eService, see Siebel eService Administration Guide.
NOTE: Service requests are also known as trouble tickets in the communications industry. The term trouble ticket is used in Siebel Communications for internal, agent-facing applications, but the term service request is used in the customer portal because people who use the product through the Web might not be familiar with this industry-specific term. In Siebel Communications, you can access the All Trouble Tickets view to see service requests submitted through the customer portal.
In the communications, media, and energy industries, a single customer can frequently have multiple accounts for different types of service at different locations. For example, a customer can have accounts for electric and gas service at many locations.
Siebel Communications and Siebel Energy allow you to define complex account hierarchies. For example, you might define a parent account for a customer's business, separate child accounts for each utility service at each of the customer's sites, and several billing accounts for billing the service at different groups of sites. For more information about account hierarchies, see the information about accounts in Siebel Communications Guide or Siebel Energy Guide.
NOTE: A contact can see an account if either the Proxy Employee value specified in the .cfg file for Siebel eService, Siebel eSales, and Siebel eCustomer for Financial Services, or the login name in the Employee Login Name field in the User list of the Administration - User screen is one of the names in the Account Team field of that account record.

In the communications, media, and energy industries, customers frequently place complex orders, which include products and services. For example, a customer might order a cell phone and cell phone service. The cell phone might have a warranty that expires after a year, while the cell phone service continues until the customer ends the service.
For communications, media, and energy industries, Siebel eService for Siebel Industry Solutions supports these complex bundles of products and services. The Siebel eService for Siebel Industry Solutions home page has a link named My Products and Services, instead of the Register My Product link on the Siebel eService home page. There is also a Products and Services applet in the My Account view. These features allow customers to view information about the products and services for the account for which they are currently logged in.
