Sorry, but I don't think you missed anything.
FM Go users have the option to delete files from their devices from within FM Go. They should be trained not to do destructive stuff like deleting their data files.
see also "PICNIC ERROR" — Problem In Chair, Not In Computer.
All the more reason I try to get as many of the FM Go solutions to work directly with a Server instead of keeping the files locally. I even avoid syncing even though I know it is needed sometimes. Keeping control back on the server is the way I prefer things to keep control of errant or even disgruntled employees. Just my 2 cents.
good sound advice, however there are way to many dead spots around here to rely on direct cell to server.
Good luck with the passive-aggressiveness. Definitely a PICNIC error!
Most of us resist change at some level, but we adjust if it's presented in a way that makes sense to us.
Perhaps, politely offer to not pay for work which they fail to document as required? Disgruntlement can take many forms, but rarely includes foregoing payment.
labor laws being as funny as they are are always on the side of the employee not the employer. employee can say the device malfunctioned and deleted it itself, employee no matter what will be paid.
but anyway, I appreciate all the feed back.
probably will never happen, but to be honest I'm more concerned about the files being deleted by mistake, say for example a child playing with mom or dads iPad, or anything.
