What should I check before logging a service request?
Prior to creating a Service Request, you may want to review these helpful tips
How is the service request handling process?
The Support Guide explains the service request process under the Managing Service Request | Service Request and is detailed below.
We assign a unique service request number (in the format of "SR Number”) to all requests. These service request numbers allow us to prioritize and track all service requests through resolution and allow you to get a status update of your service request via our support portal.
All service requests are assigned a severity level and are placed in a queue to be processed by the next available Support Engineer. A Support Engineer takes ownership of your service request and sees it through to successful resolution.
The Support Engineer will contact you, gather any additional information needed, and will investigate to determine the proper course of action. This may require the engineer to re-create the issue, work with our development team, and help you with configuration of the software.
If the Support Engineer and development team determine that the issue is a product defect, a defect ID and priority level will be assigned to the issue. If the defect is a high priority and a hotfix is planned, the Support Engineer will notify you of its availability.
Service Requests remain open until you are satisfied that the issue has been resolved. Exceptions to this policy apply to Service Requests for product enhancements and change requests. You will be notified automatically when changes have been implemented. You can also close service requests via the My Service Request section.
You can re-open Service Requests (for unresolved or ongoing technical issues) that have been closed within 30 days of the close date. If you attempt to re-open a closed service request after 30 days, a new service request is created with a link to the original Service Request. You have the ability to re-open your closed service request from the My Service Request section of the Support Portal.
Our goal is to resolve all Service Requests in a satisfactory and timely manner; however, we realize that some situations may require increased attention and focus within the Support team. You can raise the severity of a Service Request, through the online Service Request tool, or call us and request to speak with a Support Manager.
Upon your request, the Support Manager will evaluate the service request and create an action plan. If you are not satisfied with the plan or with the progress of the case after the plan has been implemented, you may contact the Director of Technical Support, who will review the service request with the Support Manager and determine if different or additional actions are required.

“+ ” link. To add files after Service Request creation, go to My Service Requests and click on the Service Request hyperlink title. The Service Request opens and then click on the “+ ” link.
How can I submit a feature request?
If you are interested in submitting product enhancement requests, you can do so by creating a service request. Once documented, the request will be submitted into the enhancement review system and an identification number will be provided to you. Your service request will remain open until a decision has been made regarding your request or your service request can be closed, and you can refer to product release notes to track which enhancements have been added to a product.
