Hi, I'm sure that this has to have been asked before but I'm failing to see any results. I'm looking for a way to be able to have a database set local to iOS devices and then be able to sync them later when WiFi access is accessible. Here is the scenario for a clearer picture:
A "Shift leader" has a crew of people that he has to take notes on for the day has an iPad that he will take with him as he works. The location they're in has no connection at all nor any possibility of getting one (this is in a coal mine). He needs to be able to make these changes on the FileMaker Go app that he has stored on his device and take it above ground later and sync it when he gets within access of the host computer.
A. Is this possible?
B. Is this possible without third party software?
I appreciate any help. It would be nice if we can put the app we have made to use. Thanks.
There are third party products like MirrorSync & GoZync or you can roll your own sync scripts. There is an excellent document in the iOS Resources section of the Technet website called FileMaker Sync Guide - well worth a read if you want to roll your own sync process.
Hope that helps.
