Popup before posting in Help during global issues

By: firoze | 06-12-2018 19:32

There has been a global impact on data services within the o2 network.

Despite a banner provided by giffgaff at the top of the Help page, over 80% (sometimes over 90%) of posts in the Help section referred to this outage.

My idea is that during these admittedly occasional but global outages that affect all members, there is a divert in place when the user clicks "Post" to inform them of the issue. If they still feel the need to post a question, they can.

I feel this would have had a huge impact on the sheer number of posts today.

Worth bearing in mind for the future.

I think users who aren't posting about the outage will get annoyed about this popup / warning. I agree with giffgaff's banner approach on Help & Support, all you need to do is look up and it's there in front of you
