This articles aims to help you collect as much information as possible when reporting performance issues.

We need to try to narrow down the population impacted and the areas of the application where the performance is poor.

In order for support to assist with performance issue, the customer should provide detailed analysis of the issue reported.

Please note that the priority of the case will vary depending on the number of users impacted and the consequences this issue has on their daily tasks.

For example:

  • Users cannot complete a training => please specify the number of impacted users and the criticality of this training for them to be able to continue with their daily tasks
  • Admins are not able to complete assignments or create records => when is the deadline and what is the impact if the deadline is passed?
