    losing data on iOS

      losing data on iOS


      FileMaker Go



      Operating system version


      Description of the issue

      when editing/creating notes etc. in FMGo while there is another, separate table active that lies on a FMServer, You'll lose all of the data entered in a field when You're getting out of the FM-network

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      open a local FM db (on Your iOS device)
      open a FM db that is hosted by FMServer, ie an inventory list of goods
      go to the local db (leaving the remote one open, in the background)
      type in some text in the local db, leave the cursor in that field

      switch to another app, maybe sms, whatever

      Now, maybe You're on a trainstation (WLAN from the Railway Company) - and the train leaves...
      Go back to FMGo
      -> message appears that FMGo tries to connect again to the FMServer, but can't
      -> FMGo closes all db's, even the local one
      =>> all Your data is lost, boom!

      Expected result

      local data is still there, local db still available

      Actual result

      all db's closed


      take care to click outside of the field every now and then.
      While this is a normal behavior on every Mac/PC version of FM, it's completely different on iOS - there You'll never lose data when on a local app/file
