This article will give you the best usage tips for Commusoft on the web. Your device must also meet our minimum spec: Minimum requirements
- Recommended browser
Although you can use Commusoft with any of your preferred browsers, we always recommend using Google Chrome for an optimal user experience. We also encourage disabling your pop-up blocker (Click here to see how) and disabling any browser plugins and extensions (In the top right, click the Menu > More tools > Extensions)
- Clearing your cache
In some cases, your browser will store certain types of information. This is known as caching. This can cause problems with slow internet browsing and unwanted information being stored. Clear cache regularly, we recommend every Monday morning for each web user. You can find instructions on how to clear your browser’s cache in our Knowledge Base here (Click here to see how)
Tip: Hard cache and reload
You can also do a cache clear and hard reload by taking the following steps:
1. Right click anywhere in your browser
2. Click 'Inspect' on the menu popup
3. Right click on the reload icon next to your search bar
4. Click 'Empty Cache and Hard Reload'
5. Then click the small cross icon in top right of the inspect panel to close it
Instead of navigating the entirety of Commusoft in one window we advise opening the different parts of the system you use most (For example, Customers, Diary, Reporting) and opening each page in a separate tab to be able to move quickly and easily through the system.
You can also Pin your tabs by right clicking the tab and selecting the pinned tab option. This will automatically open everything in the pinned order whenever you open the browser.
A breadcrumb is a navigation scheme that reveals a user's location in a website or Web application. Commusoft’s breadcrumb trail appears in the top left of the screen as shown here:
Using this trail instead of your browser’s Back or Forward button will allow you to more seamlessly navigate Commusoft and refresh your browser much less often.
If you are ever having issues on the web there are a few quick troubleshooting steps you can take before contacting support.
- First and foremost, always clear your cache and refresh your browser using the guide listed above
- Open Commusoft in another browser to see if the issue persists
- Open Commusoft in an incognito window
- Contact support
