Report errors

Finding errors

It is likely that you have already had a few problems with TradersYard X. We kindly ask you NOT to immediately send an email directly to the support. Our technical support team is responsible for system errors or technical shortcoming of our software only and therefore cannot provide individual tutoring or answer requests regarding settings or the handling of the software. This can result in longer support and response periods and might affect you one day as well.
In general, the majority of problems are caused by users themselves. Please do not feel insulted by this - our developers also often have to admit that they are the cause of a problem, not the software.

If problems arise...

...or something does not work as expected, please follow our recommendations:
  1. 1.
    First try to ensure that you have updated your program to the latest version as is described in the release notes.
  2. 2.
    We kindly ask you to look for the answers to your question in our online media (tips and information about how to help yourself you can read in this article)
  3. 3.
    If you still have other questions regarding the software, please refer to our TradersYard.
  4. 4.
    Only after this should you contact the support team.
Sometimes it´s not that easy to rate whether the issue is a technical problem or simply some wrong settings. Here are some hints about the priority states (the following support times are valid during regular office hours from Monday to Friday 9 am to 5 pm CET):
Highest priority average response time: 2 hours: You have problems with submitting an order to the broker or with the order execution and are no able to trade anymore.

How to request technical support:

For this purpose please click on the little arrow next to "Support" in the ToolBar and choose "Create Sales/Support Ticket" in the dropdown menu. Now choose the appropriate category and subcategory, add a detailed description of your request, and attach screenshots.
For a detailed investigation of the problem, you have reported, and related to your selection of the category, the necessary data and logs are sent automatically. Therefore it is extremely important to choose the correct category and subcategory!
As soon as we have received your request and the data, we will forward them to our testing team respectively take care of your request depending on the nature of your inquiry.
Further communication with the support team will then happen via email. Regarding this, we would like to point out that in any case a new ticket must be created for new requests, inquiries, or technical problems, as this is the only way to ensure smooth and complete processing.
To get even faster response in case of technical problems, our users now have the opportunity to contact our technicians, as all English requests will go directly to the responsible department. You will receive an answer – especially if there are technical problems – as soon as there is a solution or feedback from the technical department.
We are aware that sometimes this requires a bit of patience, our team always strives for a speedy solution, but investigating and solving a technical problem including final testing takes a lot of diligence and can sometimes take a little time.
You will surely understand that multiple queries do not lead to a quicker solution, but on the contrary can often lead to further delays due to the processing effort, since your ticket is forwarded to the test department and therefore not visible to the support team. We want to prevent tickets from being pushed back and forth between departments during this sensitive period, which in turn would cause delays in dealing with the problem and finding a solution. Therefore, in the interest of speedy processing, we ask you to refrain from following up on this ticket or opening a new ticket for the same issue. Please do so only in really urgent cases (essential information relevant to the solution). Thank you for your understanding!

Please note:

As of now, support requests can only be sent via this function in the TradersYard X platform. Only for the - extremely rare - case that the platform cannot be restarted, we set up an emergency contact address on our website, through which the support team can be reached in these exceptional cases.
The GDPR has led us to this step in order to be able to ensure structured and comprehensible data processing in the support area, which would not be possible with simple e-mail communication.
