Troubleshooting Tips:

  • If Astra doesn’t look like it usually does, try logging out by clicking your TechID in the upper right hand corner of the page, selecting Sign Out, closing your browser, and coming back into Astra.
  • If that doesn’t work, try using a different web browser.  Astra works best in Mozilla Firefox.
