    They were split - to a new thread - as it was duplicate post I believe.

    Database Rework

    With the latest version of MirrorSync you can use JDBC and restrict records that sync by using SQL so if the underlying fields are renamed that portion would break.

    Database Rework

    If you rename things you need to make sure the fields are on the sync layout - and then you need to request the new script steps again - or re run the config - to make sure all your changes didn't mess up the Sync - also too if you are using SQL for any queries. I wouldn't rename things while there is an un synced client out in the wild - would wait till all devices are idle. do the major work issue a new build to all remote users. (clean clone) also, depending on the user's geographical location may consider hosting on a provider closer to them as it may be less latency.
  6. Depending on the entire data set count it may be more efficient to do this Find: Select records varying keywords. Perform find - you should get your total found count including the ones you don't want. Enter find mode: OMIT - Company - new request - OMIT keyword NOMAIL - choose CONSTRAIN found set from menu.
  7. in table 2 do a find for * in a field it will find all occurrences with something present. Choose Show Omitted (click the pie chart icon next to the record navigation) then in your other field in table 1 search for your code choose constrain found set from the records menu.
  8. perfect timing - going to go bake this in to an appointment process in am setting up

    Downloading list of zip codes and US cities

    curious why would want to maintain this data, bloating your solution - don't get me wrong I've done it myself it does increase the size of your backups and can be slow to 'lookup' you might consider just using an API call to a service to validate an address. smartystreets or googleplaces come to mind. You can see an implementation of this over at https://www.geistinteractive.com/2018/10/01/introduction-to-karbonfm/

    Show active field in portal

    look at the fields in the tenant file i have ActiveTenant you could create one for each attribute activeRent then in your unit table you see the corresponding field. this would allow you to show all the active units and attributes from the context of the property - unit portal
  15. To achieve this (separate volumes / drive / computer ) I would recommend SuperContainer where you could put your files on a separate machine altogether. As soon as you move the RC folder elsewhere it opens that up to the case of the cleverness of users and IT people and may damage the contents. The RC folder should be sacrosanct. Not to mention the impact of backups that it would cause because backing of a different path.
