Ticket priority

Created by Daniel Bieberstein, Modified on Fri, 08 Dec 2023 at 01:41 PM by Daniel Bieberstein


General information

Please make sure to validate as much as possible and limit the possible source of the issue before opening a ticket to prevent unnecessary questions and delays.  Please check the required ticket information knowledge base entry if you’re unsure what to include. Only once all necessary information is available, we’re able to start working on a solution.

Please make sure to be available for questions in case of urgent / high priority tickets. If no answers for questions are given in a reasonable timeframe we reserve the right to lower the ticket priority. If we receive an out of office notification without knowing an alternative contact or receiving an answer in a reasonable timeframe, we’ll lower the ticket priority as well. 

E.g. if an urgent ticket was created but information is missing and no answer for the open questions is given within 8 workhours we’ll downgrade the priority. This only applies to urgent / high priority tickets. As a basis we’re expecting the requester to answer within twice the SLA first response times we’re setting ourselves.

Urgent tickets: 8 work hours
High tickets: 24 work hours

Assumed availability: 08:00 am - 5:00 pm
