Tips for Creating a Support Ticket
To help us provide the best support possible, please follow these guidelines for submitting a support ticket:
- Be as Specific as Possible - The more details you include in your initial ticket, the better our support team will be able to understand what you want to achieve. If you are having an issue with a specific school, course, or user then it's also helpful to include details such as the user’s email address, name, the specific URL or name of your course, etc. in your initial ticket. This helps our support team access your school information and locate the source the issue much faster, which leads to a more efficient resolution for you.
- Include Visuals - It’s helpful to include visuals to help illustrate the issue or question that requires our support. Although our help form does not have a file uploader, you can include file sharing links from services like Google Drive, Dropbox, etc. Please also ensure that you’ve given us permission to view the files.
Once you submit a ticket via our help form, you’ll receive an email receipt from our help desk provider, Zendesk, that contains the details of your support request. If you want to upload a file, you can attach files in your response to your ticket receipt.
- Avoid Multiple Issues or Questions in One Ticket - If you have a new issue or question, we recommend creating a new ticket so that each can be handled within its own email thread. This makes referencing these messages faster in the future.
- Utilize the Description Section of the Help Form - To avoid confusion, ensure that you write the body text of your inquiry in the Description section of the help form and not in the Subject Line. The subject line of your ticket should be a brief explanation of the issue or inquiry that you explain further in the Description section of the ticket.

NOTE: Live chat is available Monday through Friday from 10am to 5pm EST (GMT -5). If the Chat Now button is greyed out, this indicates that live chat is not available at the moment.
