Timezones settings for projects with customers in multiple countries and SLAs


I have set up a project for our product our customer Success team supports but we have customers in NZ, Australia and the UK. In terms of SLAs (time to respond and time to resolve) what can I do to handle this accurately? Do I need to set up goals for each country and add in the orgs. Or is there a better way?


Any help/advice gratefully received.

Hi @hclarke 

Is the support team based out of a single timezone/location ?

Jira Service Management lets you create calendars that match the working hours of your team including lunch breaks, holidays, and weekends.You can then assign that calendar to an SLA(s), so the SLA clock stops when your team are away. 



Hi Ajay 

The Support for Australia and NZ is currently done out of NZ (we plan to have someone on the ground in Australia in the next 6-12mths though) and the UK support is done out of the UK. 

The customers SLAs are all the same but match the customers time zone.


Unfortunately it gets complicated with the above the only wat I can see to do it is to create a set of SLAs for each country and add the customer orgs to it. 



winning finally got the slas all set up using the expression  AND Organizations in ("") - I had a lot of orgs to sort would be great if we get jira auto detecting country in some way to allow the use of slas without all the extra work but Im happy I have something workable.
