The new Auto Online/Offline behavior eliminates the boundary between offline and online apps. Traditional offline apps remember your clicks execute some business logic and then synchronize with the server. Offline apps have comprehensive offline business logic, but they are featureless compared to the full NAV stack. Online apps have access to all historical data and execute any business logic on the server side, but you are blocked when you don't have a connection. New MobileNAV Auto Online/Offline acts like an online app when you have a connection and switches to offline automatically when you lose the signal. What is the main trick? MobileNAV checks the connection continuously in the background. In case of connection, the app displays online data from the server and uploads the changes instantly. If you lose the signal it switches to offline and starts to collect your offline changes. If it detects that you have a signal again it switches back to online and synchronizes all offline changes. And the best thing of all, you can decide in the profile configuration which modules should be accessible with or without a connection or which modules are restricted to connected mode only. Even better it is backward compatible with the implemented offline configurations with no extra migration effort.
