  4. Availability and complexity of any alternative options available to you that provide the required outcome
  5. Number of users experiencing the issue
  6. Potential for the issue to worsen
  7. Possibility of data loss
  8. Risk of any compliance or legal implications for you

Escalated issues are categorised with the below priority ratings. Updates pertaining to the resolution progress of your issue will be communicated by chat, email and/or phone.

Any issue raised by email to the support email address will receive an immediate automatic email acknowledgement and ticket number. The support team will then review the ticket. The nature of the issue identified will determine the support team's course of action, either escalating the issue to a Senior Support Specialist for investigation, or proceed with the investigation themself. This process may commence before prioritising, categorising, and responding to the client.
