Vocab Word: Cache

There are some words I get asked about a lot, so I decided to make a running feature on my blog about them. Today’s word is cache. It can be a noun or a verb, but I’m going to focus on the verb use because that’s the one I get asked about.

What does it mean? To cache something is to save it for future use. Usually I see it when I’m making new data collection forms in Survey123 or Google Forms. In that application, checking the “cache” box for a question means that the form will save the respondent’s last response to that question and autopopulate it the next time they use the form.

Are there other words you want to learn about? Let me know in the comments!
