Test Your Workflow

Testing is an important part of building. Before going live, test your workflows with different data to make sure they generate how you desire. Here's how to make testing easier:

Use Dummy Data

Download the Form Filler Chrome extension so you can fill in workflows with dummy data.  The Form Filler extension automatically fills all questions on your page with data so you can quickly test even the lengthiest workflows.

Note: You can also use Data Manager to rerun different sets of data into your workflows.

Refresh the Error Page to Regenerate Documents

If you get an error on a workflow, don't close the error page. Keep the page open.  Then, make the necessary change to your documents/questions and press "Save".  For example, adding the necessary variable or updating your documents. Your workflow will change in real time. Then, go back to the live workflow, refresh the page and regenerate the documents.

Clear or Bypass the Cache

A hard refresh clears your browser cache for a specific page, which forces it to load the most recent version of that page. This could include new scripts, styles or features.

Important: Clicking the "Refresh" arrow on your browser address bar is not a hard refresh. Here's how you can clear your cache through a hard refresh on any browser:

Google Chrome
  • Windows users: hold down Ctrl and then press F5 on your keyboard
  • Mac users: hold down Cmd and Shift and then press R on your keyboard
Firefox
  • For Windows users: hold down Ctrl and then press F5 on your keyboard
  • Mac users: hold down Cmd and Shift and then press R on your keyboard
Safari (Mac)
  • Go to Safari > Empty Cache, or hit Opt + Cmd + E
  • To refresh, click the refresh button on the address bar or press Cmd + R
Internet Explorer/Microsoft Edge (Windows)
