How to Get Support

Self-service support

The best way for you to get help immediately is to search for a relevant help article in our Open Social help center.

Email support

Send an email to help@getopensocial.com for support. Please use your official work email address. This is so we can identify your account. We aim to reply to all support requests within one business day (09:00 - 18:00, Central-Eastern Time).

Phone support

Open Social only offers phone support within the enhanced support services, which is only available in the Open Social enterprise package.

Bug reporting

Customers may report errors or abnormal behavior in the service by contacting Open Social via email at help@getopensocial.com. We will then forward the issue to a developer, as appropriate. The resolution time depends on the nature of the problem. Customers will cooperate with Open Social in order to ease the support process. This includes, without limitation, providing the following information to Open Social regarding the incident:

  • Aspects of the service that are unavailable or not functioning correctly
  • Incident's impact on users
  • Start time of the incident
  • List of steps to reproduce incident
  • Information about your operating system and browser
  • Wording/attachment/image of any error message
