7 Jan 2021 – Publishing issues resolved

The publishing issues that some of our customers experienced this morning have now been resolved. We apologise for the inconvenience this caused. Thank you for your patience.

7 Jan 2021 – Publishing issues

We are aware that some users are experiencing issues publishing reports. We are investigating these issues and will update you as soon as they are resolved. We apologise for the inconvenience this has caused.

Postcode lookup function

The lookup function is unfortunately no longer working and cannot be fixed in time for the launch of the new ProForms platform. Users can still input addresses manually to find reports.


We apologise for this inconvenience and the functionality will be restored on the new platform when launched in 2021.

If you encounter an issue publishing your reports

A small number of users have today experienced difficulties in publishing reports. These users have found that removing and re-adding their licence key has fixed these issues. We are currently investigating the root cause of the issues and hope to ensure that no-one else is affected, but should you experience difficulties, please try removing and re-adding your licence key.

Issues with missing text and saving your report

Update: these issues have now been resolved.


We are aware of the issues a few users are having in relation to saving and missing text on reports and are currently investigating this fault.


Please bear with us in the meantime and we will keep you updated on our progress.


Until the issue is resolved, we recommend users always generate a PDF preview of their reports before publishing. Should your report be suffering from any missing text issues it will be visible in the PDF preview.



1. For reports that do have missing text in the PDF preview please retype a test sentence and generate a new PDF preview.


2. Should the text appear in the new preview then please continue to re-enter the missing text as normal, again using the PDF preview function before publishing.


3. If the report does not show the test sentence please try copying the report (details of how to do this can be found on the isurv WorkSmart Help pages) and amending the copied version instead. Repeat the steps of using a test sentence and PDF preview before continuing to amend fully and preview once more before publishing.


Our customer support staff will be able to talk you through the above steps if required, however they will be unable to retrieve any work which has been lost
