Clear cache and reload

If a user is experiencing performance issues with Symphony, a quick resolution is to clear cache and reload. This clears all local cached data and additionally the IndexDB too, which could be the root cause of the problem.

 

Clear the cache and reload by following these steps:

 

Windows

1. From the Symphony Desktop Application (SDA), click the Hamburger menu.

 

2. Click Window.

 

3. Click Clear cache and Reload (Figure 1):
