Similar to any web-based platform, a browser refresh or computer restart may fix the problem
Here are some things you could try if you are having trouble loading a page, or are experiencing strange behaviour on the website:
- Close and re-open your browser and try again
- Try opening an incognito/private browsing window or clearing cached files in your browser's settings
- Try using a different browser — our web-based app works best with Google Chrome. Please note that Internet Explorer will no longer be supported starting August 17, 2021. More information about this and recommended web browsers can be found in this article.
- Try restarting your computer
