What additional support is available?
Users on Workplace have access to the Workplace Help Center, Workplace Help Community and the Customer Resource Center.
Where additional support is needed, admins are also able to contact the Workplace Support team directly via message or chat. To access your support inbox and make a new request:
- Open the Admin Panel from the Workplace navigation bar.
- Click Contact support.
- You can also access the Contact Support section here.
- Click Ask a question to send Workplace support a message.
- Click Chat with us to get support via instant messaging. Chat support is currently being rolled out and is not yet available to all customers.
You can also access this screen by clicking in the Workplace navigation bar and selecting Contact Workplace Support.
The support inbox allows you to see past support requests, filter support requests by their current status, and see if there is any outage that might be affecting Workplace functionality.
Still need help?
All Workplace users can find additional support by:
- Visiting Developer Support. This is the place to learn about technical integration between your company and Workplace.
- Visiting the Customer Resource Center. This is your central hub for all Workplace best practices and resources. It can help you to ensure a successful Workplace launch and achieve quick results within your organization.
There are several benefits to using Direct Support:
- Admins get visibility on all support requests created by admins in the company.
- Direct support is in-product, meaning admins don't need to go outside of Workplace to get assistance.
- Admins have the ability to see the status of the tickets they've submitted to keep track of progress.
If you're an admin on your Workplace, you can request phone support for an issue. To request phone support:
- From your News Feed, click Admin Panel.
- Click Contact Support.
- At the top, click Ask a Question.
- Select the topic that your enquire relates to.
- Fill in the form and turn on Request Phone Support.
- Click next to Authorize Recording to enable this as well.
- Type in the phone number you'd like to be contacted on and click Confirm..
Phone support is activated for all topics except Company Management, Billing, Apps and Integrations and Safety Check.
Note: You will not be able to contact support agents directly. Agents will call from a random number.
Priorities can be used to provide information to Workplace Support about the business impact and urgency of your issue or question. Guidelines for each priority can be seen below.
High Priority: Severe business impact
Severe impact to business. The issue prevents users from being able to perform their job responsibilities. Requires immediate action. No possible workarounds available.
- All users are unable to login to use Workplace.
- A key component of Workplace is not working for all users, such as the ability to create groups.
- A key stakeholder, such as the company CEO, is unable to use a core functionality of Workplace, e.g. cannot go live.
Mid Priority: Moderate business impact
Moderate impact to business. The issue prevents some users from performing their job responsibilities. Workaround is available. Non-primary feature of Workplace is not working for users.
- Some users are not able to go live.
- A non key component of Workplace is not working as expected - Mac users being unable to download a video.
Low Priority: Low business impact
Low impact to business. The issue is transient. Workaround is available. Impact is less than 5% of total users and issue is not a core component of Workplace.

We provide native support in the following languages:
Native support for other languages is expanding so this list is subject to change.
