This document outlines the support services the UK Live Support Team provide for the UnionCloud platform, ensuring a timely and efficient support service is available to UnionCloud end users.

Support Tools

There is one simple way of raising a query with our support team, using our ticketing tool.

Ticketing Tool: Freshdesk

Freshdesk is an Online Ticketing System that is used by unions to log and track their incidents/requests. 

It holds the history of an end users interaction with the help desk and provides a complete record of issues surrounding that user. Users are also able to submit feature requests here. 


The knowledge base contains a historical log of UnionCloud documentation alongside guides on how to use every feature. 

UnionCloud Support Availability

UnionCloud Support via Freshdesk is available from: 9am - 5pm Monday - Friday

UnionCloud support requests outside of office hours will be collected, however no action can be guaranteed until the next working day. 


Requesting a call back

Should you need to speak to a member of the team urgently you can request a call back by submitting a ticket with a summary of the issue and the contact number you can be reached on.


Planned out of hours support

Support can be extended to outside working hours at cost providing there is 14 days notice. 


On site assistance can also be arranged at cost. When a support request is raised, the owner assigns the severity according to the perceived importance of the reported situation. The priority is assessed by the support team based on the response to the owner
