While we monitor Otus' performance 24/7, and automatically alert our Development Team if the health of the application degrades, there is the possibility that we are unaware when a particular action in the platform is slow.  

You can check on the status of Otus in live time using the chat feature:

Basic Troubleshooting 

  • Completely Log out of Otus and Log Back In

    • Rather than just closing the browser, try completely logging out of Otus by navigating to the bottom-left corner of your screen, selecting your profile icon, then selecting Log Out.

    • Then, log back in, and try to complete the desired action.

  • Clearing Your Cache

    • When a new update is released, your browser may still use some older files that prevent the new updates from displaying properly on your screen. As a solution, we often suggest that users clear their browser's cache or refresh the page they are viewing.  

  • Quit Your Browser Completely

    • Rather than just closing the browser, try quitting the browser completely

    • Then, open the browser again, log back in to Otus, and try to complete the desired action.

  • Updating Your Browser

    • It is possible that you are using an outdated version of your browser. Check to make sure that your browser is completely up to date. Click here to see if your browser is running the latest version.
