If you are having an issue accessing your Airtable account or base, you may come across an error message like:
- Something is broken
- Yikes! Something broke.
- Sorry, the page you were looking for was not found.
Here are some initial troubleshooting steps you can take to resolve most issues.
Clearing your browser or desktop app cache
A hard refresh of your cache may resolve the issue. From your Airtable browser tab, you can do a hard refresh by holding the ⌘ Cmd and ⇧ Shift keys and then pressing R. If on a Windows device, the shortcut to hard refresh a page is CTRL + F5.
Clearing your browser's whole cache may not be a bad idea either -- just be sure you don't have any work in progress on any of your browser's tabs, like a half filled-out form! Instructions here.
On Google Chrome, the confirmation screen will look something like this:
If you're using Airtable's desktop app, you can click Help on the menu bar, and select
clear cache and reload to effect the equivalent action.
Once you clear your cache, try to reload your Airtable base and see if the issue is resolved.
