Q: So, is this where I can submit a bug report?

Here are steps to take to submit a bug report:

1 - Check our Known Issues page

  • Known issues that are impacting the most users are listed here.

2 - Check our Zendesk Article

  • The knowledge base contains many troubleshooting steps and solutions for common issues. Use keywords or search for specific error codes. It’s important to follow each step to successfully solve an issue.

3 - Check the Bug & Issue section of the forum

Please find below the list of official tags we will using from now:

image The team is aware of an issue and currently investigating
image A Community Feedback is logged in our database, and our test team is working to reproduce the issue.
Note: If the feedback is verified as a bug, the thread’s tag will be changed for “Bug logged”

image The issue reported by the community has been successfully reproduced by our test team and turned into an official bug. The bug is now being assigned, prioritized, and worked on for a future fix.

image Unable to reproduce, need further information
image A workaround is available
image The issue previously reported is now fixed on the current version of the SIM

  • Other Community Members may have experienced similar issue as yours. Search for a thread specific to your issue and contribute by adding relevant information along with your vote.
  • If there’s no existing thread discussing the issue you are experiencing, restore the sim to its Vanilla state then try again. If the issue persists, create a new thread using the template we provided.

4 - Send a support ticket to Zendesk

  • If your new thread didn’t attract too much attention or if the solutions suggested by the Community didn’t help, submit a new request to reach out the support team via Zendesk.
