Filemaker Go Offline Mode

Question asked by JulioSandoval on Jan 6, 2017

Hello All,

 

I have been looking for a solution that allows me to do the following.

 

If the iOS device loses connection to FM Server, have it keep a copy of the DB locally, and when connection is restored to FM Server, have it synchronize any changes made locally. (Essentially, it's like working in offline mode. Cached copy perhaps?)

 

 

Scenario:

We have 100 devices accessing the DB on FM Server

The devices lose internet connection/lose of cell service

They continue updating the local DB

Cell service/internet restored

Changes are synced immediately to the DB on FM Server

 

Is there a third party solution that does this?

Is there a script that will allow us to do this? or script steps?

 

At the moment, if FileMaker Go loses connection to the host, it will also lose access to the FM database.

 

Any help is appreciated.

 

Thanks!
