# Contacting the support
## General information
You can contact support through the following channels:
**1. Live chat **- Engagement offers a live chat functionality with responses provided during agreed business hours. It is available for all users within the Engagement platform help center in the location highlighted below.
**2. Email [[email protected]](🔗)** - a direct email alias to the helpdesk is also available, with responses provided during agreed business hours. We recommend using this address only in the event that live chat is unavailable.
**3. Phone** - the phone option is available only for business-critical cases, reflected in the [SLA](🔗).
### Business hours
**Standard Support:** 9:00 am - 5:00 pm from Monday to Friday. Cases opened outside of business hours will be responded to the next business day. Supported timezones: GMT/BST, CE(S)T, ED(S)T, PD(S)T, MD(S)T, CD(S)T. The client is supposed to select 1 timezone.
**Premium Support:** 24x7 - all time zones included, weekends and holidays.
### Language support
Support agents provide assistance in English, Russian or Slovak language.
## Best practices
**1. Provide specific examples and links to all related resources** to ensure that any given request can be processed as effectively as possible and that the support team can recreate the issue.
**2. Raise a support request for each individual issue**. The aim is to keep the communication as clear and as effective as possible. By separating the issues, we can decrease the resolution time.
# Ticket management
There are three levels of support for resolving the clients’ queries:
**1. The first line of support (L1) **- the first line of support resolves the majority of the requests. First-line support agents gather the necessary information, do the investigation, and, if possible, resolve the issue. In cases where first-line support is unable to do so, the issue will be escalated to the second line of support.
**2. The second line of support (L2) **- the second-line support, which continues with an in-depth investigation and provides updates about the resolution to the first-line agents. In cases where second-line support is unable to resolve the issue, it will be escalated to the third line of support.
**3. The third line of support (L3) **- the third-line support consists of on-call developers operating 24/7 who can solve the most advanced technical issues. They provide updates to second-line agents, who in turn inform the first-line agents.
When a member of the support team escalates the issue to a higher line of support (L2 or L3), they fill in an internal support ticket. As a client, you will not have direct access to the ticket. Instead, you will be informed about status changes via live chat.
It is quite common for our support to request a HAR (HTTP Archive) file to investigate an issue you are having closely. In order to do this, refer to the [How to Generate a HAR File](🔗) page and follow the guide depending on your browser.
