Same here, I usually have good assistance. But, I am also a nag. I periodically look at my open calls and contact them. If I have not heard back by the next day or so, I call back.

We have also generally have a very positive experience with the
helpdesk. We've been on Innovative since 1991, so we go back a ways, and
while there have been some recent calls that have taken a while to get a
response by and large they have been the less urgent situations. We
recently implemented the Inn-Reach module, which required quite a bit of
assistance to set up properly, and the response time to problems was very
quick. Ditto with setting up the proxy rewrite method last spring.
I agree with Rita, though; I usually open calls by phone so that I can give
a good solid explanation of the problem. I generally request that if they
need to contact me back they do so by email, however, so that I have a
written confirmation of the call. If you don't do that, then logging the
calls carefully is essential or it's easy to let something slip through the
