The people responding are professional and seemed experienced with the majority of the assistance concerns I asked until I got to a question handling integrations. They were often a bit clueless when it got to that level and sent me to tutorials that didn’t assist with what I needed. With the more standard concerns, I didn’t have to go back and forth with them multiple times to get the problem figured out – . They generally addressed the concern to the degree I required the very first time. There is no consumer assistance phone number and no live chat for clients of Teachable.
