Reporting bugs - step by step

April 21, 2022

Bugs are software errors that can creep into any application. These so called bugs are deviations from a required or desired target state. The good thing is that these deviations can be fixed. So, if you notice that something is not working as it should, take action!

At empower®, we prioritize the smooth installation and use of our software solutions. Our customers' user experience is extremely important to us. This article will outline when and how to report a bug or issue to the empower® support.

What to do if you find a bug?

The best first point of contact for bug solutions, issues or general usage questions is our empower® Helpcenter. You can find articles with advice and solutions for commonly reported bugs and asked questions. For example on sync, authentication or authorization, installation, and SSL.
