Email or in-app support is always unlimited throughout the lifetime of your account with us. To enable us to give you the best support, all support is dealt with in order as it comes in - unless the issue is urgent and needs escalating. When you submit a request for support, it is assessed by Helpdesk and actioned generally within the first half an hour.
Internally, we see support requests in three ways:
These are general day-to-day questions to refresh your knowledge about something, like a setting, or how to fix discounts, or how to set up party members or extras. Generally, all the answers are in our Knowledge Base. In this instance, you can still use the system to take bookings, run reports and function normally.
These are potential issues preventing you from carrying out a specific task that may involve a technical fault. The support team will give you a work-around in the meantime until the issue can be resolved.
We are likely to know about these issues before you do – this is where the entire or part of the system is offline due to a technical fault.
To help us out when you email or in-app message in:
Please provide as much information as possible regarding your request with screen shots or any error messages.
When progressing or responding to an existing support request, please reply to the existing thread to avoid creating multiple support communications relating to the same request).
Please note: if you call our support line and it’s busy, do leave us a voicemail or reply back to us via email to add additional information so we can assist you.
We expect to chat quite a bit during your setup phase – you’re still be getting to know the system! But once your account is live (when you are using the system to take bookings over the telephone or online) you will probably find you don't need us as much. Our support team is always at the other end of the phone 9.00am-5.00pm Mon-Fri, but we would encourage you to start using the in-app messaging system for general support queries where possible.
