What YOU need to know about Squish Email Support¶
Support tickets act as mailing lists¶
Each email sent to the firstname.lastname@example.org results in either a new support ticket, or is associated with an existing support ticket.
Support tickets contain a unique ID and is included in the subject line along with the ticket topic.
Support tickets also contain a list of subscribed email addresses called the notification list. All email address on a ticket's notification list receive all emails sent to that ticket, resulting in each support ticket acting as a mailing list.
Please notify support if you wish to add or remove email addresses from particular support ticket.
Check for emails classified as spam¶
All emails from one specific support ticket have the ticket ID included in the subject line. For example, ticket #34253's subject line might read: [T34253] Help finding hidden object
If in doubt, please check your email client's spam folder if you haven't received a response within 24 hours.
CC'ing others in your replies¶
If you CC (courtesy copy) someone in your replies to our support tickets who is also on the ticket's notification list, they will get the email twice, once CC'd from you and once from our support system.
This can be confusing. The best solution is to make sure that person is on the ticket's notification list and rely using our support system to include them in the email.
Unexpectedly sending emails to support tickets¶
Colors not supported¶
Our support system does not support colors. Colors used to mark areas in your email are not visible in our system.
Uncommon file formats not supported¶
Please try to explain your problem within the body of the email.
If an attachment is required, please only send documents in common formats (Microsoft-only file formats may not be usable). Feel free to provide screenshot/image files, but avoid placing such files into any other documents. This helps ensure you receive the best response time from our support.
Large attachments not supported¶
Our support system may remove attachments larger than 2 MB. Please use the JPG, PNG or GIF formats when providing screenshots, and avoid the BMP format (often produces large files).
If you need to provide large files, email us, and we will provide a URL for upload.
Snapshot packages - Getting updated packages between releases¶
froglogic provides new snapshot packages of their products to many customers on a daily basis. This means each snapshot package carries the same version number as its predecessors. Because of this we need to know the detailed build information contained in your squish package.
A bit verbose, but still very useful, general guides to efficient, email based communication (universal, not just froglogic):
