Data from external systems like booking systems and shift scheduling systems is updated at regular intervals and cached locally in the PaxFlow application. In cases where the data from these third party applications needs to be instantly imported into the system, a manual refresh can be triggered. There are multiple options to update specific data in the application. Whenever a refresh is requested, number of items updated are shown after the refresh.
To use the manual cache refresh tool, go to the Integrations and click the caches symbol next to the settings button of your booking system integration.
