5. Disable extensions or whitelist the Eduflow domain on ad blockers

6. Close other tabs are using Eduflow

It may be most efficient to close out other tabs, windows, and other browsers to rule out them interfering with using the app. Sometimes it can be a tab you forgot about but left open!

Afterwards refresh or hard refresh.

7. Restart your device

Sometimes this undoes whatever could have been the issue. Tasks that were persisted in the background and not fully closed will be cleaned out by this.

8. Try a different computer network

If you are getting stuck in the upload process it may be due to large file on a slower network or something interfering with the connection (Firewalls, filters)

9. Try a different machine

If it's related to the hardware or operating system, this can rule out issues with that may be undiagnosed yet localized to the machine.

If you are using a phone or tablet, try a laptop or computer with a supported browser.
