Apps do not use latest module version

Hello Retool!

I've edited one of our modules ( but the updates are not reflected in apps that use this module. For example, this app ( does not reflect the latest changes to the module.

We have release versioning disabled, and my understanding is that apps should always load the latest module version. It has been 2 days since the module was last updated and the apps won't update. Please let me know if you need more information from me to troubleshoot this issue.

Thank you,
Nick Pozoulakis


To give more context to the retool team, this bug is across all our users.
We already tried suggested steps to validated this is not a cache issue :

  1. Check if there are any errors reported on the module changes you made. This may be unlikely, but worth a check.
  2. There could be a rare possibility of caching issues. You might want to clear your browser cache or try loading the app in incognito mode just to rule out this issue.
  3. Give a hard-refresh (Ctrl + F5 or Cmd + Shift + R) on the affected apps to make sure they are not loading old data from cache.

The weirdest thing about this bug is that if in editor mode I delete the Module and readds it, I can see that it is the latest version. But I refresh the editor mode or try to see if the changes have been applied to the real version of the app, it still shows the wrong one.

In the end to fix this, I duplicated the module and updated all APPs to use the new module.

+1 on this bug. We have recently downgraded to the free version, hence lost the release management, and the app is stuck on the latest release in the View mode.

Thank you for flagging this issue, are we still experiencing it? I'm happy to create a bug report internally.

Hi Paulo,
I confirm this is still an issue today. I have this app
Which uses this module
And the latest expected changes are not showing up in the app using the module. (latest changes I did on the Feb 26).
To "fix" it I would need to delete the module from the app and readd it which I haven't done yet.

Our team would be happy to follow up and give more details regarding this issue through email if needed.

Thanks for the update @Bianca_Bosse! :slightly_smiling_face:

I am not able to reproduce it. The changes I make on a module are updated on the parent app the moment I refresh the page. Since we cannot access your App or Module unless they are public, could you export them as JSON and post them here? Or attach them to a DM and send them to me if you prefer. This way, we can to load your exact same configurations to take a closer look at what is going on and make a detailed bug report.

Thank you in advance!

@pavol, your issue is a bit different. We can help you get your app back to normal. I sent you a DM with more details. :slightly_smiling_face:
