  1. I actually would remove the fields on the sync layouts only on the device version of the database . Should take 5-10 minutes of additional work each time I prepare a new offline version. I will test some initial syncs it to see if it's worth the hassle.
  2. I noticed that writing data is a bit faster when the layout has nothing on it. No object or field. Can we remove the fields from the sync layout on the device (iphone, ipad)? (I understand that the fields must be on the sync layouts on the server) Just a crazy idea I had this morning
  3. I may be tempted to test the Development license of fms 16. Limitations Does this apply to Mirrorsync ?
  4. I'm curious about this new feature. What I particularly want to know if the process requires an initial sync after the download of the new version .
  5. Sync Check Speed Improvement - Part 2

    How's the speed of EasySync compared to Mirrorsync ? We like Mirrorsync but we had troubles recently and the fact that it's an external app makes it harder to debug . We're looking at other products while we're waiting for a fix.
  6. 2 problems that may be related 1.Starting a few days ago I sometimes get an error message (Unexpected response from Mirrorsync server) . It seems to happen when I haven't synced in a few hours. When I retry 2 seconds after the error message it works just fine....apparently anyway. 2.We got a wrong deletion of a record that was just inserted in the same sync. In the log there was this line WARNING: Deletion scanning mismatch in NodeReference for hub node FileMaker Server ... with associated spoke node Client node .. on iPhone Go ... Deleted record count (1) - extra count (0) does not equal expected missing recount count (0). This will probably lead to false deletion scans on every sync after this. Not sure what that means and what is the cause of this problem but I must say that it's scary. I already sent the log to 360works but I'm trying my luck here as maybe someone already had this problem and knows the fix.
  7. Perfect. Thanks for the detailed answer.
  8. Thanks for the reply Jesse. What about containers ? From the documentation Should I convert my container fields into base64 text fields to avoid that ?
  9. We are currently using MS with FMS 14 ( concurrent connections license). The new licensing (which I really hate) of FMS 15 and 16 use the notion of "users" instead of concurrent connections. How does MirrorSync work with that system ? If I have 50 different users who sync their offline database , do I really need to buy 50 FLT licenses (knowing that those users will not connect directly to the server and only use MS to sync) ?
  10. Thanks for this. Got this error message this morning too. I removed the newly added table from the config and it solved the problem. It appears fmphost does not have this 2.6009 version (the version is 2.6) We really need to upgrade to v3 !
  11. Post-Sync Hub Actions

    Thanks. We will update in the next few weeks. Meanwhile I will work on an alternative way to get what I want by adding a new synced table.
  12. Post-Sync Hub Actions

    What I'm trying to do is to update some field with the result of a calculation. This update must be the last action since the calculation depends on related records that may have been updated, deleted or added inside the same sync. Of course I could achieve what I want by launching 2 consecutive syncs like this 1.Sync 2.Update records on the device (any field just to force an update on the hub) that I want to get new calculated results from the server 3.Sync again (in the A RECORD WAS UPDATED ON THE HUB section..I would add the calculated update) I guess that would work but it would be pretty inefficient.
  13. Post-Sync Hub Actions

    I tried it and no record was added. It really seems like it's not triggered . In the post-sync hub section Perform Script ["UpdateData"] Simple UpdateData test script Go To Layout ["LayoutOfTestTable"] New Record/Request Set Field [TestTable::afield;"abcd"] Go to Layout [original layout]
  14. I understand that MirrorSync 2.305 is probably no longer supported but we won't update before a few weeks and I have a problem that may be simple. I have added a script in the POST-SYNC HUB ACTIONS section of the MirrorSync customization script but it does not seem to be executed. I am attempting to update a field for a few records on the server. The script is simple and looks like Go To Layout MyTable Replace Field Contents [No dialog;myfield;newcontent] I sync and the MyField values are never modified. Am I missing something ?
  15. Order of synced tables

    I just tried the following in the WillDelete section If Get ( LayoutName ) = "travels" set field[cars::lastdestination, "x"] I deleted a travel on the device and synced. The lastdestination field on the device was changed to "x" ! So the modification is sent back to client. The problem I have now is to modify my calculated field so it ignores the travels that are going to be deleted. Can I write something in the record that is going to be deleted or will it cause a problem ? EDIT Got it to work 1.created ToBeDeleted field in the travels table 2.modified the relation between travels and cars so the ToBeDeleted travels records are ignored 3.In the willdelete section I set the field ToBeDeleted of the travel to 1 and reevaluate the lastdestination
