Although Zap is designed to be intuitive, user-friendly, and self-guided, we definitely make support a priority. When we merge an intuitive product with a dedicated Support Team, you end up with great support you’ll hardly ever need.
When you do run into questions about using Zap, Zap Support is responsive and ready to help.
Zap’s Knowledge Base and Community
Zap’s Support platform is designed to empower users to help each other and to allow easy access to help from the Zap team. You have two routes to problem solving – choose the option that works best for you:
You can go the do-it-yourself route and access how-to articles and videos provided by the Zap Support Team in the Knowledge Base. The Knowledge Base serves as your personal walkthrough on Zap and its features, and includes articles on your account settings, your requests and tasks, broker features, and consumer products.
You’ll also find helpful notes on recent Zap releases, known issues with the platform, and links to more resources.
The Knowledge Base is updated by Zap’s team and is a great way to learn new features and keep up with Zap’s updates as the product evolves.
You can take the knowledge-sharing route and access support through the Zap Community. The Community is an interactive space in which you can share ideas, ask questions, and get help from other users, including Zap Specialists. Share your ideas on how Zap can improve – Zap’s Product Development team is listening.
You can post your own questions, browse the topics others are discussing, or answer other users’ questions. Zap Support monitors the Community and fields questions 12 hours a day, 7 days a week, so you don’t have to wait days for a solution to an issue. We swoop in as needed to answer any open questions quickly.
If you’ve never participated in a Community like this, it can be hard to know where to begin. Here are some suggestions to help you get started.
What can I do in the Community?
Have a looksy! Browse around to see what people are talking about. You’ll get tips on how to do the basics. Look out for posts from the Zap Power Users, and learn how to use Zap to take your business to the next level.
Ask your burning Zap questions. You’ll get quick help from our Zap Support team, and from other Zap users. To start, just type your question in the search bar and see what comes up. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, click on the “Ask a Question” button.
Dare to post a reply! Try your hand at answering a question. Your participation is what makes the Community so valuable.
Tell us what you think. What would make Zap even better? The Zap product team is listening.
What else do I need to know about participating?
Check out the following guidelines to find out how to participate in the Zap Community. So that everyone can get the most out of the Zap Community, we expect everyone to observe the Community Guidelines listed below.
Be respectful, patient and kind. Some of us are more tech-savvy than others. Some of us are more real-estate savvy than others. Everyone has a right to feel comfortable participating on the Community. Be respectful, patient and kind to foster a community where we can best help each other. And don’t forget to thank people when they help you!
Stick to the conversation. If you have a new question about something that isn’t relevant to the post you’re on, start a new post. On the other hand, don’t start a new post about a question that has already been asked. You can add more details to the original thread – keeping it all in one place will make it easier for you and others to find the solution.
Keep it above board. The Community isn’t a place to rant or complain. But it is a great place to post questions and ideas and help others. Keep your feedback constructive, and provide adequate detail when possible and you’ll be much more likely to get help.
If you recognize any violation of these guidelines, please notify the Zap Community Manager by choosing "Report Inappropriate Content" from the message's Options menu. Let us know why you feel the content is inappropriate.
