Troubleshooting a Bug
Are you noticing something weird happening in your app and it's bringing your workflow to a screeching halt? Look no further. Here's the step-by-step process to follow to fix what's going on in your app.
Troubleshooting on Your Own
There are certain errors and bugs that can show up in your app that can be caused by your browser. These are quick and easy fixes!
- Clear your browser cache.
- Make sure your third-party cookies are enabled. This is especially important for integrations like Surfer SEO, Grammarly, and Copyscape.
- Use a different browser. We recommend using Chrome.
- Disable your VPN if you're using one.
- Disable pop-up blockers.
- Turn off other extensions you have to see if any are inhibiting Jasper.
If none of this works to solve your issue, reach out to us.
Reaching Out to Support
When reaching out to [email protected], we'll need you to include the following pieces of information:
- Your browser
- A video of what's happening (we love Loom videos over here)
- A description of what happened when you tried troubleshooting with those 6 steps above.
We know this can be frustrating, so we want to streamline this process to get ya the quickest and best solution.
Specific Issues and How to Solve Them
Is your content disappearing right after it's generated? A translation extension will inhibit the language settings in the app. In your Settings > Workspace > Language Defaults, you can change the language of your inputs and outputs. When you're in the app, rely on that instead of your extension.
If you are trying to write in another language but you keep getting English outputs, this one is for you. Make sure that your language defaults in your settings are toggled ON. Go to Settings > Workspace > Language Defaults > set Input and Output language > switch the toggle in the top right of the language default box to the right. That toggle should turn purple.
If this isn't working, make sure that your tone of voice and all other words aren't in English. Any English word in there will start to confuse Jasper and he'll most likely write in a hybrid of English and your language.
Boss Mode Credits
Not seeing the right amount of credits in your app for the plan you signed up for? Don't fret! Go to your Settings > Billing Tab > Edit Plan > Adjust Credits > Confirm Changes. Boom! You've fixed it.
Pasting content and losing your place in the document editor? Clear your browser cache and see if this helps. Don't want to clear your cache? Press the space bar after you paste to get back to your spot.
If you're trying to paste your content in a document outside of Jasper and you're getting a box around the text, try special pasting. You can do this with ctrl/cmd + shift + v.
Using Jasper on an iPad or Mobile Phone
iPads and phones don't always love Jasper the way we do. Make sure to check your browser settings AND device settings. Go to Settings > Safari > Scroll to Prevent Cross-Site Tracking > Turn this Off. This should allow you to use Jasper on your iPad.
We made this Surfer Help Doc just for you.
If you want to use the Grammarly integration in Jasper, make sure you turn off your personal Grammarly extension. Prefer to use your own extension? Don't enable Grammarly in the document editor.
Feeling like your credit usage is off? Our credit counter is extremely accurate. Make sure when you're looking for your account usage you go to Settings > Usage > Credits Used. This is the most up-to-date and accurate number. Not sure how credits are counted? Read this doc on how credits work.
If you're in the document editor, the number on the top right-hand side is how many words that are currently in the document. This is for your reference and includes words you wrote and words Jasper wrote. This number does not include words Jasper generated that you didn't use. Speaking of which - did you know you could refund credits for outputs you don't like? Read more here.
TLDR: Don't use the number inside of documents to indicate your usage.
