The Ticket Fields

TypeThis is the type of the ticket. There are three types:
  • Bug
    • A bug is a defect in the software or documentation, i.e. the behaviour of the program differs from its documentation.
  • Change Request
    • You want the behaviour or the functionality of the software to be changed or enhanced. Please, specify this change request in the ticket. Should the desired change be applicable then we will add it to our Change Management System and you will receive a quote.
  • Service Request
    • You have a question. You need assistence for configuration or set-up of the software.
    • Please note that service requests are not free of charge but based on one of the Support Options for Service Request Support.

Please classify the ticket. The type may be modified later on by the support team if it were not applicable to your support request.
