Workstation Troubleshooting – DIY

Last Updated May 29, 2022

Brief Overview

WalkMe Workstation is the gateway of DAP.

As a Windows, Mac or Web app, Workstation allows employees to search across any repository without leaving their current focus, serves as a shortcut for repetitive tasks, and engages employees to become up-to-date with upcoming meetings and the latest organization messages.

Workstation is WalkMe’s solution that enables large organizations to work remotely, supporting employees to become more productive using cutting-edge technologies.

We are constantly improving Workstation with new features and this article will provide a few first steps for common Workstation issues.

If you are experience any of the following issues, please try the troubleshooting steps described.
