Errors accepting assignments

All of a sudden, many of my students are getting an error when they try to accept an assignment. Is anybody else seeing this?

since last week we are getting a lot of errors when “accepting” assignments.

On a population of 150 students, 10% are getting the error.

Sometimes F5 (refresh) is a solution.
But most of times the solution is to refollow the invitation link of the assignment (after 5 minutes)

we have similar percentage of students experiencing issues with accepting assignments. They get “There was an error accepting this assignment, please try again. If problem persists please contact support”. I am following it up with support as suggested. We have worked around it for time being by creating another assignment link.

Same here. The solution is to use chrome ‘incognito’ windows to open the link.
