    RangeBeacons returning values when no beacons are turned on...

    TomEdge

      FM GO 15.0.3 and 15.0.2.  RangeBeacons continues to return a value even when all beacons are turned off.  We are going to use beacons to identify the user logging into our application, but as soon as a single beacon gets turned on all of the iPads start going to that user's start page no matter where the beacon is located and after the beacon is turned off.

       

      This wasn't an issue when I first began testing beacons in v15

          Thank you for your post.

           

          iOS gives an app a few seconds to respond to an enter/exit event.  Immediately turning the beacon off followed by an immediate scan will return a value, making it seem the calculation is returning a value when the beacon is off.  This behavior occurs in FileMaker Go 15.0.1, 15.0.2 and 15.0.3.

           

          How much time after the beacon is turned off before you perform a scan for beacons?

           

          Testing would like to get a copy of your solution so they can investigate further.  I have sent you a private message with instructions where to send your file.
