We know that there are events that specific communities consider "major" for their business -- whether this is the Superbowl , Black Friday/Cyber Monday, a live event, a new product launch, a relaunch of your design, a demo for executives, or any one of a dozen other scenarios, it is our goal to work with you to ensure that events are as seamless as possible.     Outages Khoros is committed to ensuring that you are supported 24/7/365 on any outages.  We have a comprehensive guide to outages and information about our general status page available for you to take a look at, but the summary of this is that if you or your customer's are down or unable to work, let us know and we'll quickly take a look to see what's going on! You can always keep up to date on our status page where we do our best to provide insight to outages impacting multiple customers.    Being Proactive Assuming you know ahead of time that you have a major event coming up, please let us know as early as possible - at least a week - if not more - is ideal! Although we have monitoring in place to help mitigate issues as best as possible, the best situation is where we can proactively review allocated resources, your server side setup, and make sure that there simply aren't any issues!     Reaching Out If you have a Technical Account Manager or CSM, please make sure that they and Support are aware of your impending event so that they can pay attention to it.  If you don't, don't despair! Open a support case letting our team know that you have an event coming, what the date and time of it is and that you'd like us to take a look to see if there's anything that needs to be done to help prevent an impact on you or your customers.  If you can add Proactive to the case subject, it'll help us organize the solution as well. Depending on need and contracted level of support, this may require some additional conversations to figure out what is necessary to help you be successful.   The above applies to whether you're a Care, Communities, Marketing, or JX customer!

So you've launched a subscription with one of our products and ran into an issue or have a question that you couldn't find the answer for on this community. Don't fret - we've got you covered! It's our mission to ensure your support experience is seamless and effortless.  If you have access to the Case Portal, you might have noticed a lot of fields on the new case submission page. Why is all of this information necessary / required?  We understand that not everything you submit to us will merit this information. For example, if you have a simple request or a question, providing steps to replicate or describing the expected and actual behavior may not be relevant. However, the more information you can provide from the start, the faster your experience will be. For all service requests, whether to report a defect or simply a question, there are some fields that will help us solve for your query more effectively. Subject - Just a brief summary, a tweet if you will, about the request Description - Here's where your novel goes, with the entirety of the request Customer Priority - By default, this is "normal" but sometimes there's a High or Low priority request. These should be compared to your others, meaning 90% of your request would typically be "Normal" in priority.  Severity - These are contractual levels, but take a look at our Support Page for some definitions. This is a field you can't change once submitted, but our support team can if appropriate. When reporting a defect or issue to Khoros Support, please provide the following information: URL of Khoros Product and/or URL(s) of where the problem occurs Steps to Reproduce Expected Behavior Actual Behavior Browser and OS Username, Roles, or Ranks  When asking a question or making a request to Khoros Support, please provide the following information: Subject Description / Request / Question URL of Khoros Product Providing the above will eliminate the chance for any confusion or unnecessary back-and-forth that may lengthen the time your case stays open. On a final note, a picture is worth a thousand words - if you're able to attach screenshots to your case submission, it will be extremely helpful to the team in getting your case moved along even faster. And if a picture is worth a thousand words... a video is worth a million! If the issue you're experiencing is intermittent or rather involved, capture it on a quick video. There are several applications out there that offer video capturing of your screen - Jing is a great free tool to try and works on both PC and Mac.
