Tally Isn't Loading

Tally proudly boasts over a 99% uptime, if you're having problems accessing Tally just follow these steps:

Step 1 - Check our service status

We announce any problems with speed or service on our Twitter page as soon as possible, generally this happens the second we confirm a problem, we also keep customers updated and posted on the problem and resolution.  The link for our Twitter page is http://www.twitter.com/TallyAccounts - if everything is looking good there then proceed to step two.

Step 2 - Clearing your temporary internet files

This step usually solves 99% of any accessibility problems.  Temporary internet files are files stored on your computer that help webpage’s you’ve previously visited load faster.  Occasionally they can cause problems with websites loading.  Just click which browser your using from the list below:

Internet Explorer

  1. In Internet Explorer, click ‘Tools’ from the menu bar along the top.
  2. Select ‘Internet Options’.
  3. In the ‘General Tab’ you’ll see a section half way down labelled ‘Browsing History’, click the ‘Delete…’ button.
  4. Tick the check boxes for ‘Temporary Internet Files’ and ‘Cookies’.
  5. Click the ‘Delete’ button.
  6. Restart Internet Explorer.

Mozilla Firefox

  1. In FireFox click the ‘Tools’ button from the menu bar.
  2. Click ‘Clear Recent History’.
  3. Select the time-range to ‘Everything’.
  4. Tick the check-boxes for ‘Cookies’ and ‘Cache’.
  5. Click the ‘Clear Now’ button.
  6. Restart FireFox.

Google Chrome

  1. In Chrome click the little spanner/list icon on the far right of the address bar.
  2. Click ‘Settings’ from the list.
  3. Click ‘Under the bonnet’ from the list of options on the left.
  4. Click the ‘Clear Browsing Data’ button.
  5. Select the ‘obliterate the following items from’ to ‘the beginning of time’.
  6. Select the check-boxes for ‘Empty the cache’ and ‘Delete Cookies and other plug-in data’.
  7. Click the ‘Clear browsing data’ button.
  8. Restart Chrome.

Safari (on Mac)

  1. When in Safari, click ‘Tools’ in the top menu bar.
  2. Select Reset Safari from the drop-down.
  3. Select ‘Cache’ and ‘Cookies’ from the list.
  4. Click the Reset button.
  5. Exit and re-launch the Safari.

Step 3 - Trying another browser

To double check that it's not a browser issue we always ask that you try and log in using a different internet browser, this way we can completely rule out anything to do with that.  Two browsers that you can try are Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome - just click on those links to download.  If you can't replicate the problem on the other internet browser then it seems the problem is local to that.  If you're still having trouble even in the different browser try moving on to step 4.

Step 4 - Testing if it's just you.

To double check that it's not just you facing the problems check the website http://securedwebapp.com - this is the domain name where Tally’s systems are located.  If that advises up then it's likely a problem with your internet connection or computer.  If that says down then it's likely we have a problem and will need your help by moving on to step 5!

Step 5 - Getting your details and contacting support

If you're still having trouble just drop the friendly folks on support an e-mail and be sure to include the following details:

  1. Your username.
  2. Copy and paste the details from http://www.thismachine.info.
  3. Confirmation that you've tried clearing your temporary internet files.
  4. Confirmation that the problem happens in another browser.
  5. Any other relevant details such as when the problem started.
