Exchange of information about support issues

  • We give you an identification number that is used to reference your specific issue in the future.
  • You should give us the following information in order to help us efficiently diagnose your issue:
    • Product name
    • Operating system and version
    • Software version of the Code42 app
    • Computer ID (GUID) of affected devices
    • Logs
    • Username (or email address) of affected user accounts
    • Detailed description of the question or problem
    • Screenshots of relevant settings or error messages

Definitions of issue priority

Each time you report an issue to us, we categorize it by the priority of the issue and the potential impact to you. These are the guidelines we use to categorize the priority of each issue:

Priority Level Description/Criteria
Urgent

The issue causes a complete loss of service and you cannot reasonably continue using the software in this state, or the issue affects your entire deployment.

 

Code42 expects you to be readily available 24/7 to drive a timely resolution to the issue.

 

Examples of urgent priority issues include:

  • Security reporting or alerting is non-functional
  • SSO/SCIM is non-functional and you are unable to sign in or register new devices across your entire deployment. 
  • Any issue that causes a complete outage of Incydr feature or functionality across your environment. 
High

The issue causes a severe loss of service or affects the majority of your deployment. You can continue work in a limited capacity, but you may have an alternative method or workaround for the issue. The issue interferes with long-term use of the software.

 

Examples of high priority issues include:

  • Security reporting or alerting is inconsistent
  • Inability to restore from many devices
  • Installation issues across a major portion of your deployment 
  • Severe performance degradation affecting your service
  • Inability to renew your account
  • An outage affecting a major portion of your deployment
Normal

The issue causes a minor loss of service or affects a small portion of your deployment. You can continue work despite an inconvenience or non-critical issue with the software.

 

Examples of normal priority issues include:

  • An issue affecting a single user
  • A problem with a single file event
  • A problem with file event exclusions
  • A cosmetic issue with the Code42 app or Code42 console
Low

The issue causes little to no loss of service.

 

Examples of low priority issues include:

  • A request for additional information
  • A report of an error in the product documentation
  • A request for an additional feature or future improvement

Escalation requests

Transferring the issue to another Technical Support Engineer is called "escalation."

Technical escalation

You may request that another Technical Support Engineer handle your issue. When issues are escalated, they are usually (but not always) transferred to a Technical Support Engineer who has more experience handling issues of that type.

Include the following information:

  • Your ticket number
  • The reason for escalation
  • The expected priority of the issue
  • Additional contact information, if necessary

Technical Support Engineer management escalation

You may request escalation to a Technical Support Engineer manager or leader in the event an issue is unresolved after a reasonable amount of time, or if support tools, process, or experience don't meet your expectations. A Technical Support Engineer manager:

  1. Evaluates your request as quickly and efficiently as possible
  2. Determines an appropriate action
  3. Communicates the decision to you

The manager may ask to have a direct conversation with you. Your issue may be transferred to another Technical Support Engineer, depending on the manager's decision.
