If Workshop Software begins to run slowly, there are a number of tests that you can run to distinguish the cause of these speed issues and potentially find a resolution.
Checking Your Internet Connection
As Workshop Software is a cloud based software, it requires a stable internet connection to run. If this internet connection is slow or unstable, the software may run unusually slow.
To test your internet connection:
- Open a web browser and type in this URL: https://www.speedtest.net/
- Click GO
- Wait for the test to finish and check the Download Mbps. This value should be above 5 Mbps. If this is less than 5, you will need to get in touch with your IT consultant or Internet Service Provider (ISP) to have this resolved.
Check your Computer
Another potential reason that your computer may be running slowly is that your computer does not have the requirements to run Workshop Software at a high speed. Check the link below to see the recommended specs and learn how to check your computer’s specifications.
