The Higher Logic Customer Support ticketing system allows customers to choose a business impact (High, Medium, Low) when creating a Support case. It's helpful for Support staff to know how customers feel the issue is impacting their business. The business impact options are described in the table below.
NOTE: The priority of a case is ultimately determined by the Customer Support Team using the following guidelines.
The following table details our priority levels and promised response times.
|Priority||Description||Time to First Response||Availability|
|Core system is down; users across multiple customer sites cannot access system; severe performance degradation; a major security incident that resulted in unplanned down time.||Posted to status.higherlogic.com; targeting 30-minute follow-ups or mutually agreed upon follow-ups until resolved||24x7 Real-Time System Monitoring|
|Failure in a subsystem or primary function of the product and there isn't a workaround.||2 hours||Monday–Friday
8:00am–7:00pm ET *
|Failure in a subsystem or primary function of the product but a workaround is available.
Failure in a secondary function.
|1 business day||Monday–Friday
8:00am–7:00pm ET *
|A minor or cosmetic problem with minimal impact.
All general inquiries.
|3 business days||Monday–Friday

* Customer Support for priority levels 2, 3, and 4 is not available on Higher Logic U.S. observed holidays.
Priority level adjustments
The priority level that a customer selects when submitting a case is subject to adjustment by Customer Support staff upon evaluating the case. For example, if a case reporting a typo on a page is marked as High priority, a member of the Customer Support Team might downgrade the case to Low priority (unless a reasonable justification is provided) because the issue does not impact functionality.
NOTE: If the priority level of your case is downgraded, a Customer Support Specialist will notify you of the reason.
What if there is an error, issue, or bug on my site?
While the Higher Logic Customer Support Team is your point of contact for questions and support-related issues, we encourage you to always:
- Check the Known Issues section of our knowledge base to see whether the issue you're experiencing has been reported and whether there's a known workaround, then
- Check our knowledge base for product-specific information, and to then
- Create a case clearly describing the issue, if you have not found information on or a workaround for your issue.
TIP: See How to create a case in Support Center to see what information to provide when you create a Support ticket.

What is included in Higher Logic's core support?
Higher Logic's core support includes bug fixes, front-end and back-end troubleshooting, task orders (refer to Task Orders below), and responses to "how to" questions.
NOTE: Due to the nature of bug fixes, troubleshooting, and task orders, they take precedence over "how to" questions.
NOTE: In addition, "tasks in bulk" (i.e., all manual-process tasks that will exceed 30 minutes of work time) will not be executed as core support, but could be situationally evaluated which may result in a task order.
What is not included in Higher Logic's core support?
What can I do if I am not getting a response on a case?
First: Reply to the case email message and request an update.
Then: If you feel the need to escalate the case or are dissatisfied for any reason, send a message to CCsupport@higherlogic.com with the case number and your request. A member of the Customer Support Team will respond as quickly as possible.
Task Orders are:
- Integration changes
- Custom report requests
- Restoring any of the following that was accidentally deleted:
- a site, site navigation, and site content
- a community, community content, and community memberships
NOTE: There is a minimum charge of $400.00 for all task orders.
Each task order is evaluated based on the level of effort deemed necessary to satisfy the request. Unless otherwise indicated, the task order final cost will be provided to you and your approval is required before work begins.
NOTE: You will be required to digitally sign a statement of work for any task order that is estimated at $1,000.00 or more.
