Let the platform do the work

Clearing Browser Cache


Sugar uses your internet browser's cache to optimize page-load speeds and general performance by saving and reloading visited pages instead of pulling the same data over and over again each time you revisit a page or site. If you tend to open Sugar pages in multiple tabs, frequently update records, or make system-wide changes, you run the risk of viewing a cached version of Sugar and not seeing the most recent changes. When you experience unexpected behavior in the application, try clearing your cache as a first defense.

Please refer to the Supported Platforms page to confirm that you are using a supported browser for your Sugar product and version.
