Pivotal iPad App - Work Offline
« on: May 07, 2013, 01:17:49 AM »
Hi Guys,

I've been asked to look into how the 'Work Offline' functionality works on the Pivotal iPad app. I've read the documentation that was supplied with the product and it does not really give an insight on how it works and what functionality it has whist using this mode.

This is what it says.

"Apart from the regular login, you can also login to the application in Work Offline mode and Demo mode."

It's not very descriptive. Does anyone know anything about this? I've searched on the web for this but it seems like there is no information. It may be one for pivotal support but I thought I would try here first.

Kindest Regards,

Rahul Patel

Update:

Spoke to someone from Pivotal and they said that the iPad would cache all the updated data and then when the iPad gets a chance to sync, it would update all data that was modified when the user was working offline.

Whoever told you this information is WRONG!

the Device Client (iPad) ONLY caches record information on the iPad as the records are loaded by the user. When the iPad is then offline, then user can access that cached information in Read-Only mode, as a convenience (like most iPad apps).

Also, there is NO synchronization with the iPad client; if you don't have an online connection, you cannot update data via the iPad client.
