NITRO Site Settings are the common settings used across various NITRO components in the site. To view and configure these settings, navigate to SharePoint site settings page and then click the site settings link:
<Site URL>/_layouts/15/settings.aspx => “Crow Canyon NITRO Site Settings”
Details of each option are given below.

Cache Site Metadata
This section can be used to enable or disable caching of site metadata. Also, cache can be reset for all users from this section. This includes information about the site lists and columns, list views, Forms settings etc. Note that this does not include data stored in list items which is never cached. To improve the page load speed, it is recommended that this setting is always enabled.
This data is frequently used by various NITRO components. For example, NITRO Forms and List Views need the information about columns in lists to draw the appropriate controls and show data in correct format as per the data type of the columns. Instead of fetching this information from SharePoint every time, caching enables NITRO to store this in user’s browser cache for faster access. If any changes are made to list columns or portal settings etc., users can clear the browser cache to get the updated settings immediately. Or, site administrator can do a ‘Reset Cache’ from this section so that NITRO components will fetch the metadata again on next operation by users. Note that users may have to refresh the browser twice to see the updated settings.
