I get the error message “Unsupported Browser”+
The event platform works best in Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox internet browsers but some organisations use Internet Explorer or similar as by default.
If you have Chrome or Firefox installed on your laptop please start by opening one of them. Then, instead of clicking the link in the email you’ve received from us, right click it and go to ‘Copy Hyperlink’. Paste this link into the web address bar at the top of Chrome / Firefox.
If you’re still struggling, read on, or contact us on: email@example.com
I can’t access Chrome or Mozilla Firefox on my work laptop+
We understand that some organisations don’t allow access to these browsers and prefer to use Internet Explorer by default. In this case the best option would be to access the platform on a personal device if possible – this can be a mobile phone, a tablet or a laptop.
You still log in using your work email address, but from a home device that does allow one of these two internet browsers.
