A "ticket" is a conversation within our online support center. Each ticket has a unique ticket number. We request that you open a separate support ticket for each issue. Please do not list multiple issues within the same ticket.

You can view and reply to a ticket within our online support center, or by e-mail. If replying by e-mail, please be sure to keep the subject line intact so that your message reaches our ticketing system.

Difference between Support Credits and Support Contracts

Depending on the type of support you are looking for you may need to have a Support Contact and/or Support Credits in place for your organization or product.

  • Support Credits 
    • A single support credit is generally worth 1 minute of time with the support department.  
    • Support Credits can be purchased in 120, 300 and 600 credit chunks
    • Support Credits are also included with your purchase of a Support Contact based on what product and type of Support Contract you have purchased.
