    • I’m having problems with the site. How do I report my issues?

    • First, we’re sorry you’re having trouble. You can e-mail our Webmaster for help.

      Please be as descriptive as possible about your problem(s). It will help us to know:

      • What feature or page you were attempting to use

      • If you were signed in as a member

      • Exactly what is going wrong

      • The type of computer you were using (PC or Mac)

      • Tell us how/when to contact you for more details


      It helps if you can send us a screenshot/picture of the page you were on. On most computers, use the Alt and Print Screen keys while on the problem page, and then “paste” into the body of your e-mail.

      Our staff is available during weekday hours to contact you for troubleshooting.

    • There aren’t many classes in my area, or I don’t see the type of class I want. How can I see more?

    • On the Classes and Events tab, you can use the filter box in the left navigation area to search for ALL classes offered by Sutter Health. In that filter box, you can look for a specific topic; use a specific keyword like “yoga” or “cancer”; enter a zip code to see classes in a certain location, or pick a date range.

      Once you have signed into the site, you can also go to My Account (in the upper right navigation) and add a second zip code to your registration. This will allow you to see classes near your home address and this second zip code whenever you visit the site and sign in.
