How can I get help with technical support for my students?

Part of running a business online means supporting your customers. Here at Thinkific, we can offer you world-class support to help you run yours! However, there may be a time when you get a call or email from your own customers asking for technical help.

Web applications can be frustrating to troubleshoot, so here are some first steps you can take to solve the problem without requiring outside help right away:

  1. Send the user here: and tell them to refresh their cache. Sometimes browser caching causes problems.

  2. Tell the user to try in a private window in their browser of choice (e.g. Chrome's Incognito Mode, or Firefox's Private Window). This opens a fresh browser window without any extensions or settings blocking your content.

  3. Tell the user to try on a different browser (Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari, IE, Opera, etc). Sometimes the installation of their browser may be damaged. If it works on every browser but one, tell them to reinstall that browser. If the issue persists after reinstalling, send in a support ticket to us as it may be an issue only we can fix!

  4. Tell the user to try on a different device or computer (mobile phone, tablet, PC/Mac laptop/desktop, etc.). Sometimes a certain device has trouble with a content type. This is rare but could be a problem.

After all of that, if nothing resolves the problem, send a support ticket to us via describing all the results of the above troubleshooting methods.

We've got your back, but we need as much information as possible about the issue your student is experiencing. We can get to a solution fastest with your help.

We're in this together!
