Common Problems
Did not receive the email
  • Did you type in the wrong email address?
  • Do you have a spam filter on your email inbox- try a different email account.
  • Did you open your logbook before uploading it? It usually opens inside MS Excel and when you close the file, it puts extra formatting into the file.
  • You see an error page after sending uploading the file
    Did you download the file in "CSV" format? Look at the image above again. After hitting the little box with the arrow coming out, be sure to click the "dash" after "Crystal Reports (RPT)"
    I can not find my file after downloading it. You are not alone. If it is not in "Downloads" directory, it might be on your "Desktop" or in your "Documents" folder.
