Prioritizing Support Tickets via Email

As a reminder, the most efficient way to contact support is to login and submit a ticket via the support portal. Using the portal allows you to easily track and manage all your support tickets in one place.

When submitting support tickets via email, using the formatting outlined below improves Plum's ability to process and address issues.

Subject Line Syntax

For email submissions, please use the following format in the Subject line. Failure to use the proper syntax (punctuation, capitalization, etc.) may delay our ability to respond. Customer #:{customer ID}: Priority: {level}: {description}

  • Customer ID - Your Plum Voice customer number

  • Priority - Tag your email with one of the priority levels listed below. Write this priority status in the subject line of the email (without the quotation marks).

    • “Priority: Low”

      • Definition: Little or no business impact. Example: Feature Request and General Question

    • “Priority: Normal”

      • Definition: Minor impact to business. Example: A non-critical issue that is not a direct result of the Plum Platform, such as the failure of a single number or intermittent issues

    • “Priority: High”

      • Definition: Severe impact to business. Example: A critical application failure or an instance in which the majority of numbers and services are not functioning as expected.

    • “Priority: Urgent”

      • Definition: Business operations have ceased. All numbers, applications, and services are completely down.

    • NOTE: Tickets submitted without a priority default to having a “Normal” priority.

  • Description of issue - Tell us what's going on.
