How to Fix Performance Issues

General solutions

MeisterTask may not work effectively on your computer because of issues with your browser or internet connection. To check this:


  • Restart your computer, then try using MeisterTask again.
  • Check your internet connection. If you are experiencing connectivity issues, open a different website to check that you are connected to the internet, or use an online speed test to check your internet connection.
  • Check whether performance issues only occur on certain networks (e.g. on your office or home network). Contact your system administrator or network provider if issues only occur on one network.
  • If you are using MeisterTask in your browser, try a different browser (or use MeisterTask in Incognito Mode, Private Browsing, or similar). If MeisterTask works better in the new browser, clear the cache and cookies on the original browser, then try again.

Other solutions
