Tips for Success in eProtocol
Use a recommended browser.
If you are using Windows, eProtocol works best when using Mozilla Firefox. If you are using a Mac, eProtocol works best when using Safari or Mozilla Firefox.
Allow pop-up windows.
Pop-up blocking software prevents the eProtocol application from opening certain windows. You'll need to make sure that your browser has all pop-up blocking software disabled while using eProtocol.
Avoid using your browser's BACK button.
Instead, use the menus and links within the application to navigate.
eProtocol will time out after 45 minutes of inactivity. Only actions that cause the page to refresh or reload (such as saving or navigating to a new section) are indications to the system that your session is active.
Some processes can take a minute to run. Avoid clicking your mouse while your pages are loading so that the system does not force you log in again.
Read the Instructions.
Many pages in the forms offer instructions on the page to guide you and to answer the most common questions. You can also check the FAQ page for answers to eProtocol questions.
To protect your private information, always log off and shut down your browser completely (close all browser windows) when you are finished using eProtocol.
