Offline working

    ​Hi,

    We're just building our first PowerApp. It's for our property managers to survey our estates. This means they have to wander round entering data which could theoretically take a long time and they are likely to lose connectivity at some point. As such we need to build in offline capability so this looks like quite a meaty project for our first go. The offline has to be included in the MVP.

    Wondered if there's anyone in the community who has experience of building anything similar who has capacity to assist in a consultative basis. Or anyone just willing to share any experience, flag any pitfalls etc.

    Thanks

    Hi

    We've done a similar project for a forestry client who frequently have sites with no connectivity so happy to talk through with you to help pass on what we've learned.

    In addition there is a presentation given by Chris O'Brien who covered the basics of offline working in PowerApps to our group meeting in August. If you navigate to the Cambridge group you can grab this from the library and download his presentation.

    Hope this helps and please do reach out for a virtual coffee / chat to see if we can point you in the right direction.

    Thanks so much for the assistance and the subsequent chat.

    We are both going into the weekend feeling a lot more positive about delivery.
