How to Report a Problem with Bloom

If you come across a software problem when using Bloom, our team wants to know about the problem so we can find a solution for you.

There are four steps to this process:

  1. Start your error report
  2. Report the Problem
  3. Check for an email receipt
  4. Follow-up with Correspondence

Start your error report

To start the process, you must:

  1. Select the book which shows the problem. You might be editing the book, or publishing the book.
  2. Click the ? in the top-right corner.
  3. Click Report a Problem.

Report the Problem

Following this, the Report a Problem dialogue will appear.

  1. Describe the problem in as much detail as you can. For example, which page(s) of your book exhibit(s) the problem?
  2. Tell us if the problem happened only once, or if it keeps happening.
  3. Ensure your email is entered and is correct. (Hint: if you registered in Bloom, your email will appear automatically.)
  4. Ensure these boxes are ticked.
  5. Click Submit.

Depending on the speed of your internet, and the size of your book, it may take some time to send your book to Bloom’s error-reporting system.

Eventually, you will see a message like this:

You can close the message.
