Submit a New Request: Best Practices
When submitting a new support request, we suggest you include the following information within the ‘tell us what you need help with’ and ‘can you give us more details’ fields of the request form for the quickest streamlined response:
- Where does the issue exist? For example, on the Admissions list page, on the personal tab of the contact record, etc.
- Who is affected by the issue? Provide a link to any relevant contact record(s) or list the contact name(s).
- What steps did you take before you arrived at the issue? For example, what page were you on, what did you click before the issue came up, etc.
- Attach screenshots/files (if applicable) in the ‘attach files (optional)’ section of the request form.
- For any form edits: Please provide this information in an editable document and NOT in a PDF format so that we can copy and paste the information you provided. When submitting form edits or form builds, please review the SchoolAdmin Support: How to Submit Form Requests article prior to submitting your request(s).
My Requests: View Current and Past Support Request
To access a history of your Support requests, or re-open a past request, simply click on 'Help' → 'My Requests'.
