The people responding are professional and seemed well-informed with most of the assistance questions I asked up until I got to a question dealing with combinations. They were typically a bit clueless when it got to that level and sent me to tutorials that didn’t aid with what I needed. With the more fundamental concerns, I didn’t have to go backward and forward with them numerous times to get the issue arranged out – . They generally responded to the question to the degree I required the very first time. There is no consumer assistance telephone number and no live chat for consumers of Teachable.

It’s a bit long, so I have actually had to break it up into a number of screenshots. Then it asks them to enter their account info. This consists of an email address and name.

As an example, if I were using a Teachable subdomain, clicking on the logo design above or any Teachable created page will take the user to businessbolts.teachable.com.
