Top basic troubleshooting tips
- Hard refresh. Just like it sounds, this refreshes the entire app. Press Cmd Shift R or Ctrl Shift R on your keyboard to hard refresh.
- For emails: Click into your email and double-click the Email icon towards the upper right corner to fully refresh your email.
- For web apps (Facebook, WhatsApp, Teams, etc.): Add a second instance of the app to your setup (don't delete the first instance giving you issues). Log into the second instance, then delete the first.
- Data reset: resetting your app data often remedies a wide range of issues! Check out our step-by-step instructions, by operating system below:
