Welcome to Athennian, we’re excited you’re here!

Getting to know a new piece of technology can be intimidating and frustrating. That's why we're constantly working hard to ensure that our Help Center provides many help articles and training materials.

If along the way you have any questions you come across that you can’t find the answer in the Athennian Help Centre, please message the Athennian Support Team.  You can reach us via:

  • Click on the Help or Owl icon in the bottom left-hand corner of Athennian
  • This will open the Resource Center
  • Select Support Request and fill in the form that appears

To get started, make sure you're using the Google Chrome web browser as this is the browser that is recommended by Athennian for the smoothest experience.

  • Documents: A list of the most recent documents you've opened;
  • Tasks: A list of the overdue or upcoming tasks for all of the entities across the database;
