Is it possible to push a sync to all users? From any user. We need to put orders on hold in the office, so they need to come off the list on the devices as quickly as possible.

But with Automatic updates the app only syncs from the cloud every 30 mins.

@Simon_Bailey You could do a broadcast notification to your app, and then construct a deep link to force a sync. The deep link formula would be something like this:


That will navigate to app “MyApp-123”, force a sync, and display its default starting view. - App Column Type (Deep Link) App Column Type (Deep Link)

We’re planning to enable shorter auto-sync intervals. As you can imagine, this is very resource intensive on our servers, so it will be limited to corporate plans. Please send us a note via if you’re interested in trying this out.

@tony Thanks Tony.

I guess that only forces a sync on the device or browser that has made a change though?

@tony or would the broadcast notification cause the sync on all devices?

@Simon_Bailey It would only work for iOS/Android devices, since browsers can’t get push notifications. It would force a sync for everyone who taps on the push notification, which runs the deep link.

@tony Thanks. That could work.
