Work Manager 6.4 Auto Sync

Experts,

Scenario is to auto-sync app at start of work shift. As soon as user enters login and password at the start of day, Work Manager app should sync. Is this achievable?

Thanks,

Alok.

    Yes, you can configure your application to always connect to the server on login. In the Editor go to Application Security > User Settings > Login and check the Always connect to the server from login dialog option. Save, publish and test! This of course does require that you always have connectivity.

    Your best option may be to add a Start of Day process that the user would invoke to start the day and include a transmit action step.

    Based on your original comment. As soon as users enter a user name password at the start of the day it should sync is accomplished with my original suggestion. If users leave the device logged in and connected while off shift you are correct it would not trigger a sync since they are still logged on.

    You might be able to address that with server level inactive timeouts to disconnect the user from the server. This would prompt the user with a connect option which would in turn perform a sync.

    Start of Day is not a built in process. I was suggesting you create a new action that includes whatever processes you need as part of your start of day. You can then include the button either on the main menu or where ever you want.
