Minddistrict's service desk is a second-line service desk. This means that clients and professionals cannot contact Minddistrict. Organisations arrange their own first-line serive desk. Where application managers and/or service staffanswer questions from end users on the platform.

The Minddistrict service desk is there for you, application manager or service employee.

Read below when you can contact the Minddistrict service desk and what's important when you do so.

Contact the Minddistrict service desk safely

Do you have a question you can't solve? Would you like to report a bug or malfunction? Would you like to use one of our optional extras we have to offer? Then please contact the Minddistrict service desk.

Note: We have limited access to your organisation's platform. It is therefore important to provide the service desk with sufficient information, without sharing privacy-sensitive information. The better the information is provided, the faster the question, bug or malfunction can be solved. This is also the reason why it is best to get in touch by sending an email. Is it urgent? Then get in touch via +31 (0)85 7440 860

Always stay alert when sending privacy-sensitive information: never send client data to the service desk. Also, when supplying screenshots, make sure that such data is made invisible. Also check out this page on 'safe communication about clients'

Report a bug or malfunction or ask a question

Did you receive a question from an end user that you can't solve? Or have you possibly discovered a bug? Try to provide as much information as possible to the Minddistrict service desk. The service desk, like you, will try to reproduce the situation. The following information is important to provide:

  • Platform URL (webaddress): Organisations may have multiple platforms in use. Therefore, always mention the platform URL, e.g. 'nameplatform.e-treatment.co.uk' or 'nameplatform.training.minddistrict.com'.
  • The situation: Describe as clearly as possible which part of the platform your question is about, using the terms as they are used in the platform. Describe the steps leading to the bug or malfunction as clearly as possible. This way it will be clear where the problem or bug/malfunction is located in the platform.
  • ID' of users and tools: Modules (and other content), client and professional accounts, conversations, etc., all have a unique, annonymised ID. Is the problem or bug/malfunction related to specific content or account? Please provide the correct IDs. Check out this support site how to find these IDs.
  • Details/specifications:A problem or bug/failure may be related to the browser or type of phone, for example. When submitting information, please think of adding:
    • Browser and version number (For example: Chrome 84; Firefox 78).
    • Device, operating system and version number (For example: laptop running Windows 10; Apple iPad Pro running iOS 12.3.1; Samsung Galaxy running Android 9.0). 
    • Version number of the Minddistrict app (For example: version 3.40.0).
  • Screenshots: Screenshots provide a lot of information that is can be difficult to describe. Therefore, please provide a screenshot if possible to clarify the problem. Please note: remove/mark any client details from the screenshots so that we do not receive any privacy information!
  • What did you already discover yourself? While testing on your training platform, you've probably already found a few things that are NOT it. Or you've come across information that means you already know part of the answer but are still missing additional input. By letting us know what you have already discovered and know, we can provide the right information you need faster.
Always stay alert when sending privacy-sensitive information: avoid sending client data directly to the service desk.
Looking for guidance to answer user questions? Or seeking more details about testing on your   training platform to reproduce user questions or bugs? We described this in detail.

Request deletion of client account

Under the AVG law, a client has the right to have their records deleted. Do you receive a deletion request? Contact the Minddistrict service desk via email to have the account deleted.

Procedure for deletion

To pick up the request, we need the platform URL and the anonymised client ID. More information about finding the platform URL and  the client ID can be found on these supportpages. 

Always inform the client that deleting the account is an irreversible and permanent action in which all data is deleted. We can only delete an account if we receive the request by e-mail, provided with:

  • the confirmation that the client knows it is an irreversible action in which the data will be permanently deleted
  • the platform URL 
  • the anonymous account ID
Once we received the request, we will delete the account within 5 working days. You will be notified by email once the account has been deleted.
Professional accounts can never be deleted. However, you can deactivate those  yourself.

Delete platform request

Provide the correct URL

When you submit a removal request for a platform, for example at the end of your contract , we take the platform offline.  We delete all data from our database. The data cannot be retrieved. Removal of platforms is done on the first working day of the month.

Only authorised persons may request the removal of a platform, via an e-mail. The removal request goes via your account manager at Minddistrict. It is important to pass on the URL(s) of the platform. Don't know who your account manager is? Send your request to the Minddistrict service desk. We will forward your request to the correct account manager. Send the email from an email address known by us (from the application manager or from the contact details in the footer of your platform).

Email confirmation with offline procedure

You will receive an e-mail with information about the offline process. This will include the date and all the steps needed to store the data in a safe place, such as:

Inform your users timely

When the platform goes offline, all data is deleted (client data, message content, diary responses, session responses, feedback, etc.). However, even when the platform is offline, it should be possible to have this information, for example, in case a client requests his or her online record at a later time. It is therefore necessary to store the data and keep it safe.

Make sure you save the data in time and notify your users. Once the platform is offline, all data is permanently deleted.

Store the data in a safe place

As applicatiebeheerder you can add the rol of 'data officer' to your account.(Opent in nieuwe venster) This role allows you to access data exports:

  1. Then open the 'Data' tab, here you will now find an overview of all exports. 
  2. Click the '+ Create Export' button to generate the file. 
  3. Create an export of each Export category. When the export is complete, you can download the file. 
  4. Once you have downloaded the files, you can save them offline.
Make sure you store the data in a safe place. The files contain client data.
