David Head (FileMaker, Inc.)


Session Code: MOB004


Many use cases for mobile FileMaker Pro solutions require off-line data collection and processing, with subsequent synchronization back to a hosted solution. There are many different levels of synchronization and you may not know exactly how much you need or where to start. In this session, we begin with the most simple synchronization requirements and look at how to build a solid foundation. You will see how more complex needs lead to more complex solutions, and perhaps to commercial products or the assistance of an experienced FileMaker developer.
