Do I have to use every feature and tool the software comes with?
No, you can choose which features of Thryv you want to use based on your purchase intent and the features you need to help you manage your business.
When can I start using Thryv? Do I need to download the software?
Thryv is a cloud-based solution, therefore it does not need to be downloaded. Once you purchase Thryv, your account will be created and you can start using the software. Your Thryv login is based on the email you used to sign up. You can create your unique password at the point of sale and you can reset your password directly on the login screen if needed at any time.
What browser should I use for Thryv?
Thryv works best in the Chrome browser, however, you can also use Firefox and Safari. Thryv is not supported in Internet Explorer.
Why is there an onboarding fee?
The onboarding fee is charged so that we can make sure you are getting the most out of your Thryv. We will help you get set up and activate the features you need the most to get you started.
How long can I expect it will take to get set up with Thryv?
Post-purchase, you will be logged in and can start using Thryv right away. The QuickStart guide will get you set up with the basic elements. Then during your onboarding calls, we will help you set up the features most important to your business.
Can I take advantage of other features (known as Entitlements) within my Thryv package if I don’t set them up right away?
Absolutely. You can decide to take advantage of any of your features within your Thryv package at any time. For example, if you don’t have time to take advantage of building a new website or shoot your video right away, no worries. We can do this when you are ready at any time during your Thryv subscription.
What is Domain-Based Gmail?
Professional business email with a vanity URL (ex: firstname.lastname@example.org), which we will secure and manage for your business. This is an optional service and add-on to your Thryv software, which is a perfect pair with our Gmail Integration in the App Market.
Is a Thryv website required to add on domain-based Gmail?
No. The domain-based Gmail is available with any Thryv package. A domain can be created specifically for the new email account.
Can I use my current domain?
Yes! However, we prefer to manage your domain throughout your relationship with us. If we ever depart ways, we promise to transfer it back.
Do I need to opt-in to the Domain-Based Gmail to use the new Gmail integration in the App Market?
No. The Gmail Integration works with any Gmail account. However, if you are looking for a more professional email service with more features and options than traditional Gmail, we have two different packages. (Click here for more info on the Gmail Integration)
What is the difference between a Standard Gmail and Certified Gmail?
Certified Gmail offers additional admin security and controls and it’s perfect for businesses that need HIPAA compliance, Health and Wellness, and Legal Services. (Click here for more info)
If you have Thryv’s HIPAA add-on, is a Certified Gmail account required?
No. You can add on either Standard or Certified Gmail. However, we recommend full compliance with peace of mind with our Certified Gmail option.
Will my business be HIPAA compliant with a Certified Gmail inbox?
No. This only covers security for your email, but not your software. We suggest you also purchase the HIPAA add-on and follow all guidelines.
