Troubleshooting - How to take a screenshot of the Console

If you are encountering issues with Collins, our support team may ask you to send over a screenshot of the ‘Console’ tab. This contains information which is useful for our tech team and will help them diagnose the problem faster and more efficiently (the code shown is essentially an error report on what is breaking on that specific computer.) Ideally, we'd need this screenshot to be taken on the page that is being affected and/or running slowly and you will need to drag the panel up so it covers your whole screen, take a screenshot and send it over to the support team.

Important - When sending over a screenshot please accompany this with all the steps taken to get to that point as well as the associated URL shown in the screenshot. For more info on what we require, please see here.
