Chat Support Guide for Unified Talent Applicant Support

Live Assist Chat Overview

PowerSchool Support offers secure, remote support to customers as a fast and efficient alternative to phone and case portal support. Customers may choose to start a web-based chat to ask general questions and report issues and then elevate to a secure, screen-sharing session for more in-depth troubleshooting. Chat support will be available from 5 am - 2 pm PT.

When an applicant logs into Talent Ed  and this error appears:




An error has occurred that prevents this portion of your profile from being saved at this time or you have logged off the system.


The applicant can not proceed past this error.

Any suggestions?

Hi! @TerriR3 


This error message is caused when incorrect credentials are entered while logging in.


If the applicant has multiple accounts with the same email address, that can be a reason for facing this issue when trying to log in.


I recommend the applicants to reset the account password and ensure that they are using the same e-mail address that was used to create their Hire account.  The correct username will be available in the password reset email.


If applicants are using a password manager, make sure to delete all old passwords associated with the website before creating a new password.

Hi, @johnquesenberry1,


Thank you for reaching out!


There are a few common reasons that may be causing difficulties in accessing your applicant account. This includes the use of a different e-mail address, having multiple accounts, cache, and cookie data that needs to be cleared.


If you encounter any errors when logging in to apply, you can check this article Getting errors when logging in to apply?
