A timeout occurred error.
This error indicates that a user has sent a request to the server but the server could not deliver the results within a certain timeframe and the request timed out.
This error usually happens when you are trying to generate a report in SchoolMind which contains a huge amount of data. For example, a report that is containing data for 2, 3, or 4 consecutive academic years or similar. In order to generate these huge reports the server needs more time than set by Cloudflare policy, and it can result in a timeout.
Generate reports for shorter time periods and then merge them. For example, generate reports for each academic year separately and then merge them into a single file.
Even though error such as this happens rarely, we are constantly working on optimizing SchoolMind so users don't encounter these issues.

Blocked by Cloudflare error.
SchoolMind is using Cloudflare to protect itself from online attacks. If a user performs an action that triggers Cloudflare's firewall, the user will be blocked from accessing the SchoolMind web app.
If a visitor is getting "blocked by Cloudflare" message while trying to access SchoolMind, this means that the user is triggering a rule in the Web Application Firewall (WAF) instructing Cloudflare to block the user. There are several actions that could trigger the block including submitting a certain word or phrase, a SQL command or malformed data.
