Support

Slack

To get help from the community of developers and other users, join the docassemble Slack group. If you would prefer not to ask a question to the group, you can e-mail the developer.

Mailing list

It is also a good idea to join the docassemble mailing list. The mailing list is much less active than the Slack group, but it will allow you to receive important announcements if you don’t check the Slack group every day.

Help with deployment

Since docassemble is a web application, for many people the hardest part about using it is figuring out how to deploy it on the internet.

If deployment is a barrier, you can use the Docassemble Toolkit, a hosting and support service provided by Community.lawyer, a Public Benefit Corporation based in Brookyln, New York. Community.lawyer also offers Law Guides, an app-creation service powered by docassemble.

One way to deploy docassemble interviews is by using HelpSelf Legal, a service that allows you to create docassemble interviews without writing code directly.

Tutorials
