Local Storage

MinistryPlatform uses browser Local Storage to keep track of decisions Users have made, such as order and width of columns, sort order, etc. Sometimes this information can become corrupted or out-of-sync with the Platform and needs to be purged.

Users are able to rearrange columns, change sort order and modify column width on pages inside MinistryPlatform. If they need to reset their pages back to the default, these steps can also be used to accomplish that task. It's important to note, however, that following these steps clears ALL of their custom settings across ALL pages in the Platform. The customizations cannot be cleared on a page-by-page basis.
