DTA Connect Customer Insights

1. I contacted help desk and was told it was my phone and just a singular issue specific to me, but I have tried from different devices and I've had 3 people try to do the same from their own profile and devices and it isn't working.

2. I've messaged the help desk so we'll see how that goes but I swear if the try and tell me that it's my device I'm going to lose it, I have a brand new phone and my employer just got new desktops & laptops so nope, it's not on my end people!The recent update completely broke this app.

3. Had all the green check marks but it still said password wasn't the right format.. So it's back to square one and call the 1-800 number for my balance .Go back to the old way of logging in!!!! This is honestly a waste of time now.

4. No matter how many times I try logging in or adding a new password it just doesn't allow me to access my info.

5. I've been a software developer my whole life and when I saw that DTA was transitioning to a new login system my heart dropped.

6. I got cut off at my third phone call was supposed to to connected to customer service in 45 mins but got cut off one min before talking to someone.

7. Login issues, inability to upload documents, confusing instructions and poor formatting for reading documents.

8. What's the point of even having it when it's MUCH faster to call the number "800" number on the back of the card????? Loved the App before it was made more complicated.

9. Worst app on my phone by far.Should of just left it alone to social security number and year of birth.

10. It's obvious whoever is working on the technology stack required for this to scale and function correctly doesn't have the necessary skills to do so properly.

11. And it's only been since the update because I use this app for EVERYTHING!I can not do anything with this app, it's been difficult to access the app since they've changed it.
