Getting Support From Classworks Success Team

Teachers and Staff users can chat with the Classworks Success Team to get technical support at any time through our Chat widget from either our website (curriculumadvantage.com) or while signed in to the Classworks Manager App. 

Please note: The chat button is not displayed in the Classworks Student App or login page. 

If you are on our website or using the Classworks Teacher app and are unable to see the in-app Chat button, the button may be blocked by an ad blocker that has been installed or is built-into your web browser or site content filter software.

If you have installed a JavaScript or ad-blocking browser plugin/extension that uses the EasyList or similar list, you may not see the in-app Chat button. 

Here at Classworks, we use a third-party chat tool called Intercom to provide an in-app Chat button and support services to our customers. Intercom tracks basic application usage, enabling Classworks' Success team to provide the best support experience possible.

Ad Blockers

Why would an ad-blocking extension or plugin block the Chat button?

While Intercom (our chat provider) is not an ad-provider, ad-blocking plugins (e.g., Adblock, Adblock Plus, uBlock, Ghostery, NoScript, and Firefox Privacy Browsing mode) offer options to block JavaScript that also includes tracking functionality. 

Since Intercom communicates conversation detail as well as offering the ability to submit application insights about your behavior within the Classworks application, Intercom has made its way onto some of these secondary lists. Though there are many lists, the majority of Intercom blockages are caused by their inclusion in the EasyList list.

EasyList is an optional supplementary subscription that completely removes all forms of tracking from the internet, including web bugs, tracking scripts, and information collectors, thereby protecting your personal data.

How To Enable The Chat Support Button In Your Ad Blocker:

  • *.classworks.com Classworks does not serve ads, so it's safe to whitelist our domain.
  • *.intercom.com Required to enable the chat button.

Web Browser Tracking Protection

Using Firefox privacy mode can block the Chat button.

If you're using the browser Firefox and starting a private browsing session, by default, it will block the Chat button. You can enable the button again by changing the setting on the first page that opens in private mode, as shown below:
