Service Level Agreements (SLA)

Service Level Agreements (SLA) are commitments you make with your customers to outline how a service is delivered. It bolsters trust between you and your customers as it makes clear what needs to be done, to what standard, and when.

Choose to which Team the policy is relevant and the Minimum Priority a ticket needs to have for the policy to be applied.
Target is the stage a ticket needs to reach within the period defined to satisfy the SLA. The period is based on the ticket’s creation date, and a deadline is set on the ticket’s form once it matches an SLA policy rule. If a ticket has more than one policy applied to it, the closest deadline of all SLAs is the one considered.
When a ticket has satisfied an SLA policy, the SLA tag appears in green and the deadline field is not shown anymore.
