If you encounter issues while using Planday, you can look up some diagnostic information about what goes on in the background on your web browser. When troubleshooting issues with Planday support, this information can help save you and our support team a lot of valuable time.

When encountering an issue while using Planday on an active session (after logging in), follow the steps for accessing the developer console, depending on your browser.
