Offline Use on Mobile Devices
With SAP enhancement package 3 for SAP CRM 7.0, you can use the app offline. The following restrictions apply when using the app in offline mode:
You can assign an address to a contact but not change the address.
You cannot upload, view or delete contact photos.
You cannot upload or view attachments.
You cannot change marketing attributes, you can only add and delete them.
If you run the app in offline mode, the app stores data on the mobile device. When you have a network connection again, all data that was entered is sent to the back-end when you next save. Data is synchronized once an hour (including retrieving data from the CRM back-end). You can also trigger synchronization from the user options or by swiping down in the account list. You can also trigger synchronization from the user options or by swiping downward in the contact list.
When data is sent to the back end, it is saved even if the same data has also been changed in the back-end in the meantime.
If you want to deploy the app for offline use, you need to implement and configure it, then package it for installation on mobile devices. For more information about packaging, see Preparing SAP Fiori Apps for Offline Use.
