How to collect client logs or report an error?

The Hubstaff client for time tracking records logs of any failures, crashes, low activity or any other potential problems that you may be having with it. While these problems are rare, we do have the support to get to the core issue of what is happening and fix it for you.

If you are experiencing any issues with the app, you may send an error report so that our support team can help you. Error reports get sent directly to our customer support team so please make sure to provide a detailed description of the issue that you are currently facing.

When the app is online, you can Report an Error. On the other hand, if you are unable to login, or the app is crashing before the app can start, you can Collect logs instead.

Here are instructions on how to either report an error or collect client logs:
