How to contact Spruce Support
Contact us through the app
If you're a healthcare professional using Spruce, the best way to reach our team is through your Team Spruce Support conversation. To open the Spruce Support conversation, navigate to the Spruce app's Settings page, and choose the "Message Us" option.
The Spruce Support thread by default can be seen by your entire team. Should you want to send a private message to our Support team you will have to create a new Spruce link that just you as the owner of the link. To set this up you will go to Settings, Secure Messaging, Create New Link, and make the owner yourself and make sure no one including the practice name are listed in "Additional Internal Members". If you do want another teammate to be in this private secure message with Team Spruce you can add them to the section under "Additional Internal Members". If you need further help please review this video.
Contact us by email
If you do not have the Spruce app, if you cannot access your account, or if you are a patient using Spruce, please email our team at email@example.com.
We have found messaging and email to be the most effective methods to support our customers. At this time we do not have a general support phone number to take phone call support inquiries. With messaging we are able to see your account setup, devices, verify identify and anticipate solutions faster than if we are on the phone. Thank you for your understanding.
The Spruce Support team is online to help you from 8am-8pm ET, Monday through Friday. We do our best to reply to all inquiries within one business day. If you are experiencing a business-critical issue, please send a message to the in-app Spruce Support conversation with the word "URGENT" included, in all capital letters. We strive to respond to urgent, business-critical issues within two hours.
Examples of business-critical issues:
- Phone system outage
- Inability for you or your teammate to access your Spruce account
Spruce support is also available every Saturday and Sunday, from 8am-8pm ET, for urgent issues. Non-urgent requests will typically be handled the following business day.
Please note that platform-wide service disruptions (e.g., phone call failures or inboxes failing to load) are treated as emergencies at Spruce and are attended to immediately, regardless of when they occur. We respond aggressively to all outages, and seek to rectify them immediately. We do not consider outages to be support requests, and our response to them is not limited to typical support business hours.
How Spruce support works
Whether you contact us within the Spruce app or via email, we seek to respond to all support inquiries within one business day. We prioritize incoming requests so that we can respond to the most urgent issues first, but all support requests truly are important to us, and we do our best to get to them quickly.
Please note that our in-app messaging support is intended to be asynchronous, just like typical email support, so our responses may not always be immediate. When support request volume is low, our in-app responses can sometimes be very fast, to the point where in-app support is effectively live chat, but this is not always the case. Thank you for your understanding on this, and for working with us as we prioritize and attend to all support requests as quickly as possible.
