FAQ

Do I need to pay for the session?

No. 'Ask the Expert' is an investment from Freshworks to offer you this unique and valuable opportunity at no charge.

Can I register to speak to more than one expert?

Yes, you can. You are free to submit as many forms as you wish. However please note that seats are limited so we probably won't be able to assign more than 1 seat to all those who are interested. Therefore, we strongly suggest to pick only 1 expert you'd like to speak to.

What language is the session in?

When you browse through the available experts on the homepage, you will see what language they speak. That is the language the session will be in. If the expert speaks more than 1 language, we will determine the language of the session together after verification and allocation.

If I submit the form, am I certain I can speak to my selected expert?

Unfortunately not. We only have limited availability as we have a capped amount of experts and timeslots. After registration we will verify your request via a quick call. Shortly after the call, you will receive an email to let you know if you have secured your spot or not.

I can't make it to the scheduled meeting, what do I do?

Please keep your calendar blocked for the date and time you selected until you hear if you have secured a spot or not. When you have been selected but unexpectedly can't make it, please let us know as soon as you can. We can then allocate your timeslot to somebody else. Unfortunately, rescheduling your session to another date and time won't be possible because of the limited availability of all experts.

Why do you need to verify my request?

As seats and experts are limited, we want to make sure we make the best use of everyone's time. In the verification call, we will ask you a few additional questions about your registration to make sure we can make the right match between the needs of everyone interested and the experts' expertises. That way, we can guarantee qualitative and insightful 'Ask the Expert'-sessions.

How soon can I expect the verification call after registering?

Please allow 2-4 business days for us to process your registration and to get in touch for the verification.

Can I forward my Zoom-invite to a session to colleagues so they can join too?

No. In the call only 2/3 people per company will be accepted. Please share the details from your colleague per email with us.

I registered, but haven't heard anything yet. What can I do?

Once you have registered, you will receive an email confirming we have received your registration and outlining next steps. If you haven't received this email, please check your spam folder. If it is not in there either, please send us an email on asktheexpert@freshworks.com and we will get in touch with you as soon as possible.

I don't have Zoom, is there any other way I can access the session?
