If you are reading this Article, it is likely that you are experiencing issues connecting with your Google Sheets account.

You can use the following steps to resolve this issue. Thunkable is working on streamlining this process to make it as easy as possible.

Hard Refresh the Browser

As a first step, we recommend refreshing your browser. This can fix minor issues caused by old data being stored in the browser cache.

A "hard refresh", "force reload", or "force refresh" ensures that you are seeing and using the latest version of Thunkable, and that any cached data that could be causing a connection issue is wiped clean and freshly retrieved.


The keyboard shortcut to hard refresh your browser is Ctrl + F5. You screen will blink momentarily and the banner should disappear. If not, try clearing your cache.


On a Mac computer you can use the Option + Cmd + R shortcut to force your browser to refresh. If this does not work for you, try clearing your browser cache.

Refreshing didn't work for you?

If the above does not work to get your back to Thunking with your Google Sheets, then you'll have to reset the connection.
