Q: What if I have technical problems using the service?

A: If you are receiving error messages, or having other technical problems accessing the service, there are lots of things that you can try. Technical difficulties will probably be down to the way your computer network and software have been configured.

  • If a temporary password won't work, remember that they expire after 50 days, so check the date you received it.
  • Ensure that you are using one of the supported browsers (see What is a Web browser?). For security reasons Streamline Online will only work with browsers that meet our high security standards.
  • Make sure that cookies are enabled in your browser (see What is a cookie? and How do I enable cookies in my browser?).
  • Your organisation may have a firewall in place to protect you from hacking attempts - this firewall may be preventing you from accessing the service. Ask your technical support people or Internet Service Provider to confirm that you can access the domain.
  • If Web access is restricted within your organisation, again, ask your technical support people or Internet Service Provider to confirm that you can access the domain.
  • Check that your Internet access is working - try navigating to, or some other site that you know you normally have access to. If you can't reach that either, then your Internet connection is probably down. Report the fault to your technical support people, and try again later.
  • Ask one of your colleagues who also has access to Streamline Online to check that they can still log on successfully and use the function that you're trying.
  • Always call first on your own organisation's technical support - they will understand your computer and network configuration. Show them these FAQs so that they can see what they need to do in order to get you up and running with the service.
  • If you are sure that your computer and browser are correctly configured, and have checked that your Internet connection is working correctly, and that you have the right Web access permissions to the service, and are still having technical problems, contact our 24 hour Customer Services Team on 08457 61 62 63, and we will do what we can to get you going.
