The next section gives you an option for self-help and two options to reach out to Daktronics for assistance online. If calling in for help on the phone isn’t your thing or doesn’t fit into your busy schedule, we understand! That’s why we give you the option of requesting help via an online request.

All you have to do is choose between contacting customer service or contacting a trainer. Once you have decided, just click on the appropriate link to fill out and submit the form.

It’s quick and easy and allows you the option of an email or callback from us.You can even choose when you want the callback. So if you know you’re going to be busy all morning, you can request that we call you back in the afternoon.

Self-Help

If you prefer to do things yourself, then our Knowledge Base is the tool for you! The Knowledge Base is full of articles giving you step-by-step instructions about how to use the software and all of its features. Also, find articles to help you resolve issues when you see error messages or experience any difficulties with your Daktronics equipment.

Below the Knowledge Base link, you will find the “Release notes and latest product update information” link. If you click on this link, it will tell you what the latest updates are and show you where to find them in the software. There is also a section under that showing  the version you are using.
