How do I capture a screenshot of my JavaScript Console for the Greenhouse Support Team?

We use JavaScript throughout Greenhouse Recruiting and Onboarding. If a page or components of your site don't load properly, it could be due to a JavaScript error. These errors can be caused by conflicting browser extensions, browser security settings or other potential issues.

To help our Support Team identify issues and provide a resolution, it's often helpful to provide a screenshot of an error in the JavaScript Console of your browser if you encounter such behavior.

Capturing errors in Javascript Console

After opening the Console, you may have to refresh the page to capture the error.

Error lines are the most significant portion of the Console. You may need to scroll to see them. They will be identified with red text or highlights.

Take a screenshot of the entire browser window, including the JavaScript Console, with any error lines that are displayed.
