Individuals responding are professional and appeared experienced with many of the support questions I asked until I got to a concern handling integrations. They were typically a bit clueless when it got to that level and sent me to tutorials that didn’t assist with what I required. With the more standard concerns, I didn’t have to go backward and forward with them several times to get the problem figured out – . They typically responded to the concern to the degree I required the very first time. There is no client assistance telephone number and no live chat for clients of Teachable.
