How do I view contact options in the Impact Support Center?

When a user opens the Support Center they are first presented with context-sensitive help suggestions relevant to their role. If they cannot find the right help they need to resolve their query or need to escalate their request, they can reach out to your institution’s help desk using the contact options at the bottom of the Support Center via email, phone, and/or live chat.

These options can be made available dependent on the user’s role (e.g. student- or faculty-specific help desk) and day of the week/time of day (e.g. in-house support during office hours, external support outside of office hours). Based on these settings, the user is routed to a specific email address/phone number/chat
