Setting up Offline Sync

You are here:
< Back
    Offline Sync allows a user to fully use InfoFlo while physically disconnected from the main InfoFlo server. This is accomplished by first taking a snapshot of the main InfoFlo database and copying it, with permission controls,to a local laptop. The laptop then acts as a mini InfoFlo server which can exist on its own. All data is re-synced once the offline server re-establishes the connection back to the main InfoFlo server and data is exchanged

    Steps for setting up a user for Offline operations

  1. Create a new user account on the main InfoFlo server, if one is not already created **(Always make sure that all offline users are configured as “Admin” users on the main InfoFlo server). This is done with the admin tools, click here for more details
