Ytel's ticketing system recognizes 4 distinct priority levels, defined below:
Definition: A complete 'business down' situation or critical system down with high financial impact
Examples: Production system outage, Unable to place & receive phone calls, Critical Security Vulnerabilities, Data Corruption
Definition: A major component of your ability to operate is affected. Some aspects of the business can continue, but its a major problem.
Examples: Severe bugs affecting key functionalities, Issues impacting a critical path in project development, Able to receive inbound calls but not place outbound calls
Definition: Your core business is unaffected, but the matter affects efficient operation by one or more people. These are standard items that need attention within reasonable response times, but do not have an immediate or high impact on daily operations.
Examples: Moderate bugs affecting non-critical functionalities, Routing feature requests, General support inquiries, Unable to save a specific configuration setting.
Definition: Non-critical or minor items that can be addressed when higher-priority tasks are completed. These have minimal impact on daily operations and a work-around typically exists.
Examples: Cosmetic issues or minor UI glitches, Low priority feature requests, General questions with low urgency.
