Where is the Customer Support?!

Pipedrive is awesome for my business. It really fits the bill. EXCEPT it is impossible to get actual help from a human being. This is among the most difficult help experiences I have ever encountered. It's enough to make me look for a different solution and not renew. Just when I thought I found my CRM for life. Frustrating!!

    Antny3,

    Be grateful, at least they didn't give you instructions that lead to the deletion of all your data and then deny all responsibility. 😭

    KevinGalea,

    Wow! So, gone? Never to be recovered? Talk about a devastating blow to a business! I hope you were somehow able to get it back.

    Hi @Antny3,

    We are sorry to hear that you are having difficulties getting in touch with our support team.

    To provide some context, we offer live chat assistance for specific topics that our Bot or Self-Service platforms can't help with. These cases are given priority based on their nature. We've also expanded our resources to provide help through more channels. Our digital support bot provides tools and resources to solve issues for some users quickly without direct human intervention. These tools work great for tasks like connecting with a sales representative, checking service availability, and consulting on specific matters.

    If you're experiencing a technical problem, look for the option "something is not working", "page not working", or "revert changes" while using the bot. You'll be given some general technical troubleshooting steps to try. If these don't work, you'll receive a form to submit to connect with someone on our support team or have your case directly reviewed by our engineers.

    It is important that you select the correct options in the bot flow that pertain to your issue/question to get you connected to the correct place.

    I hope this helps!

    And herein lies the problem. Look how difficult you make it to get help. You say:

    It is important that you select the correct options in the bot flow that pertain to your issue/question to get you connected to the correct place.

    Not every problem or question is that cut and dry. Sometimes, none of the choices appear to fit, so a customer has to guess. Then what? We're all stuck? That is not good support.
