  1. Clear Browser Cache

After a TimeTrak upgrade the first trouble shooting step to take should errors occur is for users to clear their browser cache.

This ensures that none of the old version “code” that may be cached to your browser is being referenced to prevent errors and unexpected behaviour.

Google Chrome – PC

Google Chrome is TimeTrak’s preferred browser, to clear the cache on a desktop/ laptop device users can press Ctrl + Shift + Del to take them directly to step 4,5,6 or follow the below steps 1,2,3 from the top right hand corner of their browser:

Then follow the below steps:

Once the above steps are complete users can login to TimeTrak Professional as per usual.

Google Chrome – Android

Scroll down and select Privacy (under the Advanced heading) (3)

Scroll down and select Clear Browser data (4)

Click the Advanced Tab (5)

Change the Time range to All Time (6)

Tick on Cached images and files (7)

Click Clear data (8)

Google Chrome – IOS

  1. Clear Browser Cache, Cookies and Site Data

If, for some reason, errors are still occurring or TimeTrak is not behaving as expected the next trouble shooting step would be clear the user’s browser cookies and site data as well.

This can be completed following the steps from point one on the appropriate device but ticking on Cookies and Site data as well as Cached images and files before clearing the browser data.

Note: When clearing Cookies and site data user preferences within TimeTrak grids will be lost so users will need to add these back in again.

  1. Access TimeTrak from a “Clean” URL

On rare occasions the support team has found that issues can occur after an upgrade when users are accessing TimeTrak from a saved bookmark or link.

If you have completed step 1 and 2, the next trouble shooting method would be to access TimeTrak from a “clean” URL i.e. manually type the website address into the browser and login.

If this corrects the issue you should delete the saved link/ bookmark and add this back in again.

  1. Enabled new settings and not behaving as expected?

TimeTrak Professional:

When setting changes are made in the TimeTrak Admin Console the website needs to be refreshed in order for these to take effect.

TimeTrak Professional has a refresh button in the top right hand corner as per below.

Clicking this completes a website refresh allowing any user/ profile permissions to be applied.

This is covered here along with a link on how to clear your cache in mobile also covered here in point 1.
