Document will not upload

Document will not upload

New member | Level 2

Can anyone explain why certain documents will not upload? I am uploading Word documents, in .docx format. Most of them upload in seconds, for they are all small, under 500 KB. But one does not upload for reasons absolutely obscure to me. It simply hangs up, with the progress bar reporting "1 second left" and the colored bar continuing to roll to the right. I've tried changing the name of the document, although its name is similar to the others. No success. I'm stumped.

Re: Document will not upload


Hey there @PeterU; thanks for posting on our Community!


If you're still having issues with this, could you post a screenshot of the last screen you get to so I can advise further?
