Support Center

Overview

When you need help, use the Support Center to submit a request. You can submit requests for information, setup, issues, etc. or give us product feedback. Follow your request as it progresses, review and add comments and supporting materials.

Getting Started

To open the support center, from the left navigation click Support Center.

You have two options:

  • Submit a Request: If you need help setting something up, need help understanding something, or need to report an issue use this option and we will follow up with you.
  • Give Us Product Feedback: How can we make Simon better for you? We'd love to know! Let us know here. We may or may not follow up in the future.

The Support Center dashboard display your requests categorized into three sections:
