BROWSER AND SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS


Browsers


It is highly recommended that this portal be accessed using Internet Explorer Version 10 or higher or Google Chrome Version 30 or higher web browser. NOTE: Certain features and functions may not perform correctly in previous or later versions of Internet Explorer or Google Chrome or other web browsers, and, although these browsers may be used, their behavior or support will not be guaranteed.

Adobe Acrobat Reader


Also, in many cases it will also be necessary for the device, computer, or laptop, from which the portal is being accessed, have a current version of Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on it. This is so that documents that are made available through the portal as a Portable Document Format (PDF) file can be viewed. For example, in order to view and print a property tax bill from the portal, the user will need Adobe Acrobat Reader.



DISABLING POP-UP BLOCKERS


NOTE: If these settings are not set as described below, you will not get receipt pdfs and other reports to display in the browser.


Occasionally you may find that certain features do not seem to be working in Ascent (for example you are unable to print a receipt). It may be due to your browser blocking pop-ups. 


For instructions on whitelisting (allowing) pop-ups click this link.



CLEARING YOUR BROWSER CACHE (DELETING BROWSING HISTORY)


It is important to clear your browser cache for multiple reasons. For example: items saved in your cache can use a lot of disk space, and the more information saved, the slower your computer will be while browsing the web.
