To create a new Trouble Ticket:
From the Ticket Home Page, click on "New Ticket":
Complete the follow as much as possible:
- Title: A title of the issue.
- Product Name: Free Text, point us to the specific product.
- Service Contacts: Keep as "None", not yet integrated.
- Ticket Priority: Choice of "low" to Urgent. Only use "Urgent" when there is no network.
- Ticket Severity: Ability to assign the issue or even make feature requests.
- Ticket Category: Relates to which product set/solution.
- Description: Please be as specific as possible.
- Click on "Save". The ticket will be created and the Support Team at Precedence will be notified:
- The quicker and the more comprehensive information about the fault is received by Precedence, the earlier a likely resolution will be achieved. Report such as "the system is not working" or "it has crashed" are of little help and will delay solving the problem.
- If in doubt of a technical issue, please create a Trouble Ticket anyway, we will be happy to point you in the right direction or resolve the issue for you.
- Please note that once a solution has been offered, the support case will close automatically if nothing is heard back within four working hours.
