Background syncing of form data once you trigger the sync process on the tablet (screen lock stops the sync)

    We use the lookup element with thoudsands of records. Therefore, we have a similar screen lock policy issue but with initial sync after logging in. Implement a background sync process would help. Other developers have also applied a code to prevent the screen lock on their applications (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/28329185/how-to-prevent-screen-lock-on-my-application-with-swift-on-ios). 

     

    Thanks

    Hi, Gabe and Ray. Thanks for your thoughts here. Our team was actually just discussing this yesterday morning. It was a very preliminary conversation but it is something that is on our radar and we definitely see the benefit. I'll be sure to keep this forum informed as we continue to discuss, evaluate and plan.

    Is there any news or updates on this? I'm sure its not the easiest thing to just implement but this feature would literally save my users hours every week as they most finish their forms once they get home in the evening and the internet is slower, the difference between a 6 am and a 8 pm sync can be 15 mins vs 60 mins.  Its longer if they forget to keep the screen active and have to start the sync again.

    Personally I would prefer background sync vs code that prevents locking of the screen as this would allow for syncing while the device is locked which is more secure by design.
