What is a fast task?

The benefit of Cornershop's Maintenance + Support plan is that it includes fast tasks.  We define fast tasks as requests that can be completed in 30 minutes or less.

Often times these are:

  • Initial troubleshooting and investigation of new issues that takes less than 30 minutes
  • Quick adjustments to content, images, alignment, and styles that can be made directly on the live site without needing review and approval.
  • Installation of new plugins (though configuration cost may be additional).

To help manage expectation on what would and would not be a fast task before submitting a request, please reference this list below.  This is not meant to be an exhaustive list and just because something is listed below doesn't mean it will always be a fast tasks as there can be many variables.  Our support team will make sure to guide you through anything that is not covered under your maintenance plan.

Fast Task Examples

  • Answering WordPress questions (i.e., “How do I…”)
  • Inital troubleshooting or investigating bugs, errors, or issues on the WordPress site (i.e., “When I visit this page, XX disappears and shouldn’t.”).
  • Adding a new blog post or page with provided text and images, and that the post or page uses a standard template
  • Deleting a blog post or page.
  • Editing an existing page to add a photo or text that is provided
  • Installing and enabling a new plugin (but may not include configuring the plugin)
  • Adding an event calendar plugin, assuming we can use an industry-standard plugin and out-of-the-box styling
  • Linking to an offsite ecommerce storefront, like Zazzle.com (or adding links to anywhere)
  • Adding an item or two to an existing eCommerce storefront
  • Adding or removing an item to the navigation bar or footer
  • Adding a simple form, assuming you provide the form fields, confirmation text, and notification text, and it’s a maximum of 7 fields with no conditional logic
  • Adding a map with a single location
  • Adjusting an image that is too large or not cropped properly
  • Adding a PDF or other type of file and linking to it from a page, assuming you provide the file and tell us where you want it linked
  • Linking to or embedding a video, assuming you provide the video file or link to the video and tell us where you want it linked
  • Minor template tweaks that do not require extensive testing and can be made directly on the live site (i.e remove the date under a blog post listing)
