Support Policy

This Support Policy describe the list the things that we will support, and also things we will NOT support

1 Introduction

Thanks for choosing Joobi. This is our Support Policy. We’d like to highlight some of the key guidelines to ensure that you understand how Joobi support works, what we can do — and do not do — for you; These guidelines are important to us because we know they’re important to you.

We hope this helps you to understand our support commitments to you.

2 Where can you get a Support

We don’t provide our Support through any other channel (including, but not limited to direct e-mail, Facebook, Twitter or over the phone) at this time.

  • Tickets System: All support request will be delivered exclusively through the Ticket System. Support requests submitted through any other communication channel will not be addressed.
  • Community Forum: Find and share ideas with other Joobi users around the world. (not monitored by admin)
  • Live Chat: Available for presale and license related questions only. No setup and/or other software related problems.

Live Chat support is for Pre-sales (pre-order and license) question only. Any troubleshooting assistance will not be honored.
Ticket system is always the efficient way to get help.

3 Hours of Operation

Support is provided during business days from 7:00-21:00 GMT (Monday through Friday). We do also try our best to reply on weekends if we have time but not guaranteed.

First Responses

When you first submit your ticket, you can expect a first response within these timeframes, depending on your membership:

Dedicated members
7am-9pm GMT (Monday through Friday)
3 hour or less

Premium members
7am-9pm GMT (Monday through Friday)
5 hours or less

Standard and Basic members
7am-9pm GMT (Monday through Friday)
24 hours or less

Free members
7am-9pm GMT (Monday through Friday)
Usually within 3 business days

Follow-up Responses

Because the first response may open technical questions that requires some thinking, follow-up responses may sometimes take longer. Dedicated and Premium member cases always get priority.
Tricky issues may need to be forwarded to a Joobi developer. Our developers will resolve your issue as swiftly as possible, but that could take up to a few days, especially if your issues requires us to do a product updates/releases in order to fix it.

Response times are limited to the hours of operation. There is no guarantee of a specific response timeframe. Our actual response times may vary of the following instances;

  1. Your membership plan
  2. We answer tickets starting with the oldest tickets first
  3. Volume of tickets we receive
  4. We may take longer to respond to more advanced or technical queries.

Support is not available in the following days:

  • Christmas Eve
  • New Years Eve

4 Response Times

In general, you can expect a response within 24-48 hours for most issues within our scope. Technical issues that threaten your ability to use Joobi Applications are given the highest priority. Please review 'Extent of our Support' section in this page, as support differs from the level your membership plans.

Avoid answering or updating on your own ticket request in an attempt to bump it. This actually screws up the date stamp and could keep your request from being seen longer.

5 Extent of our Support

We only cover support for the latest version of all Joobi Applications and Templates.

We understand that there is a fine line between what is considered to be support and customization. Though we will try to help you with your customization questions that requires only few minutes of our time, you must understand that we cannot provide extensive help in terms of modifications.

Moreover, technical support from users with Premium & Dedicated membership will always take priority over Standard, Basic and Single license holder.

6 What we can’t help you With

View Customizations

Please read before making any changes. Customizing views gives you the power of changing any views in the Apps. It is like you are developing your own view. Therefore it is prone to errors and mistakes. Due to the fact that you are changing the original view, we cannot take the responsibility of your changes. We have made it as simple as possible and as robust as possible, however it is not bulletproof.

Here is the procedure for us to help you in case something goes wrong:

  1. Every time you make a change you need to check that the view still works. Do not do 10 changes and then check. Because if something goes wrong you will not know what created the problem.
  2. As soon as there is a problem, revert what you did.
  3. If you need help, provide us with the step you did to arrive to your problem and we will be able to help you.
  4. If you do not provide us with the step you did to arrive to the problem, we will not be able to extend our support to your issue. We can only help if we can reproduce your error on our test site following your step.

Here are a none exhaustive list of things we do not provide technical support or debugging:

  • Any views that have been changed through jApps > Design > Views

7 Customization Help

We understand that there is a fine line between what is considered to be a support and customization. In general, if a customization requires 2-3 lines of new code, we’ll be glad to assist. However, if your question requires more than that amount of code, you’ll need to contact a developer to assist you.
You can try to post your job requirements at any of a number of technical/programming job listing sites:
