Great blog, Will! Thank you for sharing! I believe that all the tools mentioned will be of great value to our partners! Congratulations on the engagement 🙂
Huge. Well done!
Thank you for the nice summary - exactly what I've had on my agenda to write up for new colleagues.
Cynical me can't help but pointing out an important step, when raising a ticket: "If you are over 55 and you want it answered before you retire, don't forget to remove the "EU-only" flag, if your customer is on a contract for EU-only access." 😉
Thanks for the amazing work.
