Can't upload documents There's an error each time, the document saves to the vault, I try and upload it again there and another error appears. Impossible to find assistance online for this

So many bugs and idiotic features Who is the moron that decided that the app WONT let you simply upload a pdf from your phone, but will let you take a picture? Hmmm....i wonder which is more complicated. The stupid in-built camera app just freezes often after you've just deleted a draft shot you don't like. Other times a black screen comes up. EVERY time it tries to crop your pic out of existence. Meanwhile, Clink tries to get everyone to use the website, but: - i cant upload docs - it updated my study details to the wrong year and wouldn't correct it - when i was paying zero rent it just couldnt handle that figure Centrelink, sack your IT people and put the new ones under contract to deliver decent services or NO PAYMENT ! (just like centrelink victims)

No longer works All of a sudden, unable to login. After redownloading, the only thing I am able to do is to view my HCC. I press the back arrow and it automatically pops up again. Very disgruntled. Fix it.
