Tool Repository - SimpleHelp staff, can we have a place to submit tools for others?

SimpleHelp staff, can we have a place to submit tools for others to import and use?


Hi Tony,

Do you mean a place within the community / forum for everyone to share tools or within your SimpleHelp server to allow techs to share?

Within the forum/community. Allow them to describe what it is and what resources are needed and provide a link so that viewers can import the tool in to their own tool box.

This is done with a lot of products to great success and allows new users to get a head start with their new purchase. It would also be a good sales tool for you. Potential license purchasers can come here and see that there is a set of tools ready and people to talk to about them. Adds value to your product. :slight_smile: I think it would also incentivize more users to utilize this community forum.


I’d like to second this.

We’ve used SimpleHelp for several years but have only recently started experimenting with the Toolbox function. Currently we probably don’t have much that we can contribute to the proposed repository but over time we could potentially expand our knowledge by examining, utilising and adapting the work of others who have more experience.

As Tony suggests, it will also bring SimpleHelp in line with other products.


This is one of the first things I looked for when I started with Simple Help. Great Idea.


Yes, please. I need some examples to get my toolbox started.

Yes this would be awesome. A way to export a tool from a toolbox to upload to a repo here. Then to install it you download the package and import into your tech console. Or a one click link would be cool too.
