Starting this month, customers in the United States and Canada have the option to contact a Microsoft Volume Licensing specialist through an online chat function. The service is available weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time and enables customers to engage in real-time with our representatives in a convenient format.
To use the chat, find either a “Contact Us” or “Connect with Us” button on the page (figure 1); clicking this button will take you to the Contact page where you can click on the Questions icon (figure 2). A dialogue box pops up (figure 3), simply enter your name, email address and a short description of your inquiry and submit via the “Start Chat” button to begin. If you don't see the button, this means that agents are not available.
The new “click-to-chat” function is the newest of a variety of ways customers can access the resources they need to answer all their Microsoft licensing questions. Some additional support features customers may find useful, include:
Of course, feel free to leave comments and questions on this blog or through our Twitter handle @Msft_VL. We are here to help you!
Is this service extends to other countries?
Hi i need to get Details on Hyper-V Licensing
This service seems to no longer be available. I am simply looking to buy additional licenses, however, i can not figure out how many licenses I already have using this site. There are too many abbreviated words and terms that i am not familiar with. Learning the VLSC site is like learning yet another microsoft proprietary language or format.
