1. Check the documentation

Please first check the documentation to ensure you are completing the steps for the functionality in the right fashion. The documentation also list all of the known functionality issues and describes workarounds is available.

2. Complete close Google Chrome.

Make sure you save your work to the local computer (observations: click in the save button; workflows: click on Save & Exit) before quitting Google Chrome. Ensure that all of the Google Chrome windows are closed to terminate any processes associated with the browser. Then restart the browser and log into the InfoEx application again.

3. Reboot your computer.

A persistent issue might be fixed by simply rebooting your computer.

4. Empty the data cache of your application

If you are still experiencing the same issue, empty the data cache of your InfoEx application to reset the application to its default state. Please be aware that this process will erase any data that has been stored on your local machine (customized data entry forms, any unsubmitted observations and workflows). You also need to be online to log back into the application after you have completed this step since the locally stored login information will have been deleted.

5. Reinstall the application

If you are still experiencing the same issue, reinstalling the application might solve the issue. Please note that any local data will be deleted in this process. You also need to be online when you restart the InfoEx again as the entire application has to be downloaded again. Depending on your Internet connection, this might take a while.
