EduMaximizer Troubleshooting

In order to better serve you, the EduMaximizer Team at Higher Ed Growth has put together a list of items for diagnosing technology errors and issues. Please send as much information as possible to so that the issue can be identified and fixed quickly.


The 7 Troubleshooting Steps 

  1. Ask any agents experiencing the issue to launch and record any errors that show.
  2. Share the Visitor ID and Campaign ID provided at the bottom of the EduMaximizer portal (Double click on the Visitor ID to easily copy this information).
  3. Share the exact wording of the error message. (Please note: the error screen with the dinosaur always has a generic error message. There is no need to copy the text on this screen, other than the VisitorID).
  4. Provide the lead information (email, phone, etc.) or the pre-populated URL that was entered into a form that produced an error.
  5. Note which part of the form is resulting in errors.
  6. Provide a detailed description of the error and the steps taken to produce it.
    • Can the error be reproduced?
    • Does clearing cache/cookies/history/restarting the browser fix the error? If it does fix the issue, the problem is most likely browser-related and considered a glitch.
  7. Include which browser (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc.) the error was produced on.
