Planview Customer Service Migration to Salesforce Service Cloud FAQ

Planview will be migrating from the Parature by Microsoft platform to Salesforce Service Cloud Community in May, 2018 due to the termination of the Parature SaaS offering by Microsoft.

Here are some FAQ's related to this migration.


  1. When will the migration to Salesforce Service Cloud Customer Community occur?

The cut-over is targeted for May 11-13, 2018 with a May 13 go-live. During the migration, you may submit cases via the existing Portal until 7 pm Central Time on Friday, May 11, as the Parature system will be brought off-line at that time. The new Service Cloud Community will be accessible on Sunday, May 13, by 5 pm Central Time via the same URL in use today (

2. Will all of my open Tickets migrate to the Customer Community?

Yes, all of your open tickets will be moved to the Customer Community and the existing Parature Ticket number will be added to the Community Case and visible to you via the new Customer Community. Note: The Service Cloud Case number will not be the same as the existing Parature Ticket number.

3. How will I communicate on Open Cases (Tickets) after the migration?

Once the migration is complete, you will be able to access your open cases via the Service Cloud Community to add comments or attachments, close the case or review the case history. You will not be able to reply to emails from Parature (PVTICKET@PLANVIEW.COM ) for existing cases, as this email handler address will be retired and your email replies will not be added to the migrated case.

No. We will be migrating all closed tickets from January 1, 2017 forward. Closed tickets from prior to January 1, 2017 will be internally accessible to Planview for historical reference.

5. How will I access Community after the migration?

If you are an active, named contact in Parature today that is associated to an open ticket or closed tickets since January 1st, 2017, your profile will be migrated to Service Cloud Community during the cut-over and you will receive an email that will prompt you to activate your account via a provided link.
