What are the common errors on Obzervr Capture?
Errors on Obzervr Capture can stop you from further progress with your Work. These common errors can be related to the Work or the Capture App itself.
To sum up, we will address the four most common errors:

- Cannot complete a Work
- Forgot Password
- Cannot synchronize the Capture App
What are the Work-related errors?
Cannot move to other Measurements

The most common error when comes to the Capture App is Sync Error. There are different reasons for this, i.e an out-of-date version of Capture, unstable connection, etc
Figure 5: Sync Errors
Try to click to Sync your device with a more stable connection. If the app keeps throwing Sync error, you can reset your Capture app. Check the steps below:
In the Obzervr Capture mobile app, click the menu.
On the Diagnostics page, select to undo changes since the last sync.
Click Yes to confirm.
You have reset Obzervr Capture. As the warning suggests, using the Undo changes button will remove unsynchronised work from the app. Therefore, it is extremely important that you do not reset if there is unsynchronised work on the device. It is only safe to reset when there is test data or no data on the device.
If you have unsynchronised data on your device, backup your device first. Read more about how to backup Obzervr Capture.
