Note: This feature is currently in the Beta Testing stage and only available on the Enterprise Plan.
Many of our customers need to do work in areas that have no signal -- walk-in refrigerators, roof-tops, deep in a mine shaft, or on a remote farm. Offline mode allows you to complete tasks and view your asset information on both the mobile app and your browser without access to the internet. Once you reconnect to the internet all of your work that was connected while offline will be updated
How it works
Limble will automatically detect when you no longer have sufficient wifi or cellular signal by displaying a banner that states that Limble is running in offline mode.
When in offline mode you will still be able to open tasks and complete them:
Limble will detect when wifi/cellular signal returns and will then send the updates to the server:
You can also cache asset files so more information is accessible while offline. Keep in mind that this can take several minutes depending on how much asset information you have.
On Mobile App
Since Offline mode is still in the Beta Testing stage it still has some limitations:
- Only tasks and the asset info pages can be viewed while offline
- You will lose the new data you have logged on your device while offline if you close the Mobile App (minimizing the app is fine), restart the device while using the Mobile App, or close the browser or browser tab on the Desktop version
- For now, you can't start new tasks while offline and if you need to start a WO or PM within a task, you will not be able to close out the parent task.
