Title

Help with script based sync

Post

I am considering an upgrade from Bento 4 to FMP 12, simply for the fact my databases are becoming more complex than Bento can handle.  But I need my data on my iOS device to sync to/from my desktop (without connecting to iTunes first)

Please provide some links to successfully setting up script based syncing with FMP 12 and FMP Go.  It seems an elusive topic as I've spent a fair amount of time searching online for solutions.  I'm not ready to pay more money for a third-party sync solution, as I'm the only user of my data.

DB1.fmp12 on desktop

DB1.fmp12 on iPhone

Make change on iPhone while away from wi-fi newtwork which has desktop DB1.fmp12.  Upon return, sync (is merge proper term?) added items from iPhone to Desktop via wi-fi.

And/Or

DB1.fmp12 on desktop

DB1.fmp12 on iPhone

Make multiple changes on desktop.  Sync (merge) changes to iPhone via wi-fi.

It seems odd that a less powerful app can sync easily via wi-fi, but a more powerful one can't.

In my case, there wouldn't be simultaneous changes made on both devices, changes would be made on one or the other.  So no risk of data getting deleted between syncs.
