Before Logging a Case
The more information provided when you open a case, the more effective we can be at isolating the cause of an issue, or what it may not be. Here are some typical questions we may have when you report an issue:
- Are you able to replicate the issue?
- What are the steps taken to invoke the issue?
- Is the issue happening with all users or specific users?
- Have you seen something like this before?
- Are you aware of any changes to your system?
Please also provide a screen capture of the full screen if an error message displays. Note: Please be cognizant of not including any confidential data with the screen capture.
Logging a Case
When creating a new case, fill in all the fields as required:
- The Case Title* should be concise but distinctive enough.
- The Case Description* ties in to questions you should think about before submitting a case. Try to be as descriptive as possible; the more you tell us, the faster we can solve the case.
- Case Type (optional) refers to which type of category the case falls in.
- Severity (optional) is set to Default = S3 Medium, but can be changed according to how urgent the matter is.
- An Attachment (optional) to provide further clarification on the case. One attachment can be included when creating a case; additional attachments can be submitted thereafter, by adding a note to the case.
Customers have the option to edit cases and modify data such as Case Type, Severity, Note(s), Attachment(s). In order to attach a file, a note must be created by clicking Add Note at the top right corner of the Edit Case Form. All notes will display at the bottom of Case Form chronologically in descending order with most recent at top. These include notes added by Sparkrock and Customer contact.
