    • Does track the specific device that last updated a record
      By folks · Posted
      Round Tripping from beta 8 2014  http://www.timdietrich.me/blog/easysync-beta-8-released/ (One possible solution - and perhaps something you'll see in a future version of EasySync -
      is to add an additional EasySync field that will track the specific device that last updated a record.) Has this been done or are we still round tripping as noted in the link above? I have two versions of client:
      1.  Data Entry Only 
      2.  View Data Only When they are run on the same iPad and data is entered with Data Entry Only and Sync'd all is well.
      When View Data Only is used on another iPad the data sync's nicely. But, When View Data Only is used on the same iPad the record previously entered with the Data Entry Only database
      does not appear in the incremental sync.  It will appear if I Reset ( with sync utility ) in View Only Data, then Sync. Not quite sure why the reset should enable the iPad to get the record, unless the reset changes the devise id or something. Any explanations are most welcome.  
    • Checkboxes and checkboxes
      By eos · Posted
      It doesn't make any difference how (or, for that matter, if) you display that field on the layout. Calculations are performed in the data layer; a checkbox is just a UI device that (combined with a value list) facilitates data input and masks/formats the field contents. You could write IDs manually in an edit box version of the field, and it would also do its job. Try writing a value into the edit box version of the field, and “watch” (so to speak) how it is not visible in the checkbox version (unless it happens to be in the value list). Doesn't change the fact that the value is in the field. There's not really any need to create that calculation field if you need its result only in the script*; rather than use If [ IsEmpty ( Table::calcField ) ] do without the field and use If [ IsEmpty ( calculationThatWasUsedInThatCalcField ) ] * (with certain caveats about calculation context that don't apply here) Anyway, I gather you got your check working now? Try this change, then see if it still works … 
    • Checkboxes and checkboxes
      By crazybake · Posted
      All seems to work, but before you posted your response, I did a little 'workaround'. I found that if I create another instance of the PermissionRequired checkbox set on the Student layout, but changed it to a text field, only boxes which are checked in the PermissionRequired checkbox display in the PermissionRequired text field. I then created a calculation field with FilterValues on the PermisionRequired textfield, using the Asset::ItemNumber as the filter - and used the if(is Empty) script step - as you suggested. It seems to work.... ?
