Check Internet Connection:

  • Ensure your internet connection is stable. Unstable connections will likely cause uploads to DataHub to fail especially for jobs that have high photo counts and file sizes.

Other things to check if the above steps didn't work:

 Reset Google Chrome Settings:

  • Open Chrome, go to Settings (three dots) > Reset Settings.

  • Follow the on-screen instructions to reset Google Chrome settings.

Check Security Software:

  • Ensure that your antivirus or security software is not blocking the websites.
  • You can access the settings of the security software and add exceptions if necessary.

Update Browser:

  • Ensure your browser is up-to-date. Outdated browsers may have security vulnerabilities.

Contact IT Support:

  • If you are in a workplace or have IT support, consult them for assistance.
