Table delivery

TableBuilder will:

  • at the time a user's table is submitted, acknowledge receipt of the job
  • provide a submitted table status update on the 'My Tables' screen
  • deliver 80% of large tables within 1 working day
  • reserve the right to restrict the number of large tables that can be submitted to the queue at any one time should the number adversely affect other users
  • limit the number of concurrent users if necessary to optimise performance. Occasionally users may be asked to try again later if the system has a high volume of use.
