Have you ever done work on your computer and have not been to access it later because you don’t have a copy on your phone? Being stuck with an old or overwritten copy of an important document is frustrating. However, in recent years, a solution to this problem has been the use of cloud storage solutions like Dropbox and Google Drive. Through their increasing use, synchronisation has become more and more common. Synchronisation is the process where information located on one device is transferred, or sync’d, to another.
For example, when you use Obzervr, data is collected and stored on your mobile device using the Obzervr Capture. Then, when you access Wi-Fi, the data captured is uploaded to the cloud, and shown in Obzervr Manager portal.
As Obzervr works offline in areas without Wi-Fi, the data is stored on the device until it comes online, and syncing is possible. However, unlike other apps, Obzervr users need to initiate the sync process. The sync push is manually operated to allow field operators choose when to sync and to prevent the app slowing down the device in area where there is Wi-Fi as it tries to sync. Once the sync is pushed, Capture will sync in the background whilst you do work on your device.
To sync using Obzervr Capture:
- On the Assignments page, swipe down to sync your assignments
- Click on My Assignments on the menu bar.
To check the version no.:
- Check the top left corner on the menu bar
- Log out and checking the number at the bottom of the screen.
Watch the video to see how to login and sync the Obzervr Capture mobile app on a Windows 10 device.
Once you initiate a sync, you will receive a notification showing the sync progress bar and a Synchronisation Complete message if you have successfully sync’d. If your sync is not successful, you will receive a notification saying that there has been a sync error and that you need to contact an Administrator. If you’re having issues syncing, check out our other articles to get more info or contact Obzervr Support for help.
