When emailing support, please include a detailed description of your question or issue. Any additional recourse, such as screenshots, videos, or names and emails of impacted users are incredibly helpful when starting a conversation with us and will lead to a faster resolution.

Leave a Voicemail

This option is available to Premium brightwheel schools only.

Brightwheel Support offers same-day callbacks for all Premium and all Trialing Customers.  Callbacks are available during business hours, currently 7am-4pm PST.

Email ( is always the quickest way to get in touch with our team. However, we understand some cases are best handled over phone. In cases where qualified customers (Premium & Trial) request phone support, we will provide a number for you to call and leave a voicemail with your account info & details of the issue.  

In order to provide you with the best support possible, we ask that you include the below information with your message:

  • Your name
  • The email address you use to log into brightwheel
  • A return phone number
  • Detailed description of the issue you are experiencing or question that you have

We use this information to verify your brightwheel plan status and determine the best way to route your ticket. 

Support will return your call by the end of the business day (4pm PST).  If the support team is unable to reach you by phone, we will send a follow-up email with a calendar link to schedule a support call.

Please Note: Currently, we do NOT offer “live support” over the phone.  Premium and trialing schools will always get the voicemail option to leave a message and/or be called back by a member of the Support team.  We are working towards offering this in the future.
