A Service Level Agreement (SLA) is a contract between an organization and its service provider. It sets the expectations and requirements for service delivery. The SLA can be between an external customer and your customer support team or between your organization's employees and your IT department. The corporate policy typically defines the overall SLA. The SLA formally defines the agreed-upon services, priorities, and responsibilities that are required to support the customers and users.
SLAs use a Business Hours Configuration to determine if an SLA is late or not. The predefined SLAs are configured to use the Default Business Hours. Before you create an SLA, you should configure your business hours.
Video: For more information about configuring business hours, creating SLAs, and rulesets for SLAs, see ServiceDesk Configuration: SLA Framework Overview on Symantec Connect.
When you create or edit SLA levels, you can configure the Late Date. SLA Configuration late date is made up of days and minutes. You can enter whole or fractional amounts into the Days field, in decimal format. You can also use a combination of days and minutes.
