“Planned Downtime”: Planned Downtime is any instance whereHireXP intentionally causes the Service to be Unavailable, HireXP upgrades its platform very frequently to both deliver new features and quickly resolve any issues. Our Standard Releases generally happen weekly on Thursdays. Most releases are done in a hot deployment mode and do not require any downtime. Occasionally, a Major Release or an upgrade in our Hosting environment may require a Maintenance Window. Maintenance Windows are usually opened on weekends or outside of business hours. They are always announced at least 24h in advance HireXP may also open a Maintenance Window on short notice in the event of an emergency, for example related to a detected security breach.
