The Plugin People business hours are Monday to Friday, 09:00 - 17:00 UK time. However, it is quite common for support cases to be worked on out of hours (even weekends). Your issues are important to us!
Time to response
We aim to respond to your queries as a soon as we get to them. We'd expect a first response within one business working day (8 hours as per our business hours above).
There are several statutory UK public holidays where the office will be technically be closed. However, we will still endeavour to reply within 24hrs, regardless of this.

There are many ways to get support, duplication of reports across channels will not get them answered sooner!
Telephone (office: +44 1242 802-757 - mobile: +44 791 468 3169) within UK office hours (above). Telephone is not a primary support communication method, conversations cannot be referred, there is no history and in most cases, Issues would still be required (above) to better manage the case
Live video calls are also not a primary support communication method. This channel may be considered for use once our primary channel (Jira) has been used and has proven to not be enough to get a support request resolved.
Data Center customer escalation for Atlassian
Data Center customers operate our products in mission critical environments and want to feel confident that if issues arise they can be addressed quickly. Likewise if you or Atlassian find any significant issues that may impact customers, or if Atlassian detects a breaking change that impacts your app, we want to be able to quickly work to a resolution with you.
Atlassian should create a blocker support case with the “Data Center Support” category through our portal.
Customers who have a business impacting issue should still use our support portal. While every issue a customer faces may ‘block’ them, they don’t need escalating as we have a support channel for this purpose.
