"Missing Browser plugin" Category on Dashboard


While tracking time with WorkSmart and using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, you may notice that while reviewing your top activities in the Crossover dashboard you have a top category called "Missing Browser plugin".

This means that WorkSmart is unable to retrieve the URL being accessed with your browser and as a result, you won't have the expected score numbers in the Activity section. Also, this issue will impact on your manager's dashboard.
