When I Work offers support through tickets and live chat rather than phone assistance. Online support allows us to quickly and efficiently deliver the answers you need. We decided to keep our support online for a few reasons:

  • We can instantly view your workplace, account activity, system details, and other information so we can troubleshoot effectively.
  • Managing your account is a visual process. We frequently ask you to send us screenshots, videos, and links to help us see what you’re seeing. We can also send you screenshots and videos to guide you in the right direction.
  • It’s faster. We can quickly get to the bottom of your questions without putting you on hold.
  • Online support keeps detailed records in one place. This ensures nothing gets lost in translation if we need to escalate your issue. We’ll always have access to previous tickets so you won’t have to repeat questions.
