Data Separation Offline mode—without FM warnings or errors?

Post

I'm creating a data separation client for my FM database. It is going to be used to take inventory on FM go and Laptops. Inventory is taken in warehouses that don't have full Wi-Fi coverage.

 

I have the file set up so it only needs to conect to the internet to access FM server to download and upload inventory.

My question:

How can I set it up so if I open the file and I don't have internet connection, FM doesn't pop up error warnings or asks where to find the server file? The startup script doesn't call on any data from the External Data nor does the layout.

I would prefer to catch that somehow and display a custom message that says "you need to be connected to the internet before completing this step".
