Is your ResDiary not running as fast as it should?

Follow this guide below on how to optimise your diary speed...


Is it your Internet Speed?

ResDiary relies on a good internet connection. 

Not only is download speed important - but upload speed is just as vital.

Your upload speed will determine how quickly your information is sent to ResDiary. 

Do a speed test here. 


0-4mps = Not ideal

5-10mps = Slow but steady

1mps+ = Now you're cooking


Is your internet a closed network?

Does your computer use a wifi network that is shared with the public such as customer wifi. 


What's running in the background?

Some programmes run in the background and are extreme bandwith stealers such as Dropbox, Spotify and system updates.

Have a look a your Task Manager (PC) or Activity Monitor (Mac) and cancel any programs unnecessarily running in the background. 


How about your Browser?

We strongly recommend using Google Chrome as your browser. 

Not only do we support it - our developers use it too. It's reliable and powerful.


Make sure your browser is 'Clean' and not cluttered with useless extensions that can steal your bandwith.
