Hi Daniel,

We are still working on our upgrade to 4.4.x, but we had very poor luck
with using escalations in our current version. The priorities did increase,
but without any additional resources being allocated, the result was every
ticket eventually being at the maximum priority. That means the priority
then was useless as a differentiator. The take-away, is that you should
only consider automatic priority escalation, if and only if additional resources
WILL be allocated.
