Completed - The schedule maintenance has been completed and live chat services are back to fully operational.

Happy Saturday folks, and thanks so much for your patience today!

Jan 28, 11:29 EST
Update - Apologies for the continued chat service disruption. We are still working on our scheduled maintenance and need to extend the timeframe to 12:00 pm EST.

As a reminder this affects the live chat service only. Your customers can still use Beacon to send you a message and email service is unaffected, but chat will not be available until this maintenance has been completed.

Thanks for your patience!

Update - Scheduled maintenance is still in progress but is taking a bit longer than we'd initially predicted. Apologies for the extended time.

We expect to have this completed by 11:00 am EST and will provide an update here if that changes.

Jan 28, 09:41 EST
In progress - Scheduled maintenance is currently in progress. We will provide updates as necessary.
Jan 28, 08:30 EST
Scheduled - From 8:30 am to 10:00 am EST on Saturday, January 28th, 2023, we'll be performing database maintenance that will take chat offline.

Starting at 8:30 am no new chats will be able to be initiated but any agents in an active chat at that time will not be disconnected. At 9:00 am the chat service will be offline entirely for about 1 hour.

Resolved - Looks like we’re in the clear! Folder counts, workflows, Beacon performance and other events across the app are back to normal and we don’t expect any further interruptions, so we’re closing this out.
Jan 24, 17:19 EST
Monitoring - Queues are still slowly clearing. Workflows and folder counts/views should be back to normal. We're keeping a close eye on things for a bit longer before closing this out. Very sorry for the trouble today!
Jan 24, 16:31 EST
Update - Our team has pushed through a fix and our queues are clearing quickly! You can expect folder counts and workflow events from the past 30mins-1 hour to begin processing in your account. Everything should be back to normal very soon!
Jan 24, 15:54 EST
Update - We're working as quickly as possible to restore services. We'll continue to update here as we make progress.
Jan 24, 15:29 EST
Identified - Our team has identified an issue which has caused degraded performance across the app including workflow performance, folder counts, search and Beacon performance. We're still seeing delays, but we've identified the issue and we're working on a fix. We'll post an update when we've got more news to share.

During this time integrations already installed will be available as normal, but users will not be able to create or manage existing apps, complete new authorizations, or revoke or refresh expired tokens.
