Frequently Asked Questions

Why are my Plans not uploading?

  • Most of the time, file Uploads begin straight away because the queue is free. If there is a peak in the number of people uploading Plans simultaneously, this will slow the upload process down. There is a queueing system to prevent the server from becoming overloaded.
  • If a Plan is taking an abnormal amount of time or failing, please see the below suggestions:

A1: An error is received. The file type is incorrect.
