  • We expanded the scope of our support services beyond the Platform Support Operations (PSO) and rebranded it as Enterprise Technical Support. This evolution enables us to cater to a broader range of products on our platform, including Storefront, Storefront Pro, Connect API, Catalog, Caper, In-store Associate App, Instacart Platform Portal, and Ads API. Whether you require assistance with our existing offerings or need support for new features, our dedicated team is here to provide you with the technical expertise and guidance you need.
  • We made it easier for you to receive immediate support for P0 (Priority 0) issues without calling our hotline and leaving a voicemail. Our revamped system ensures that your high-priority concerns are addressed promptly by automatically paging our on-call team of experts.

The Enterprise Service Desk has a new look and an improved request workflow. We simplified the number of forms and fields that were required to create tickets. For more information, see Request types and Common fields.

April 17, 2023

We added details about how the impact classification on a request corresponds to the priority of the ticket. For more information, see Priority.

We heard the feedback from the users of the Enterprise Service Desk and updated the available statuses.

The following table shows the new status name, the former status name, the applicable request types, and the definitions:
