I’ve got a particually big app with sync times in excess of 2 mins. Because its so slow we are noticing a coupe of things that might not show up if it was quicker.
On iPhones, the app does not use the internet when the App is minimised
We have 30ish people who submit timesheets. They submit at least one per day, sometimes more. Inside each timesheet there wil be 1 to 10 items in a subtable. What we’ve seen is delays of 3-4 days from someone creating a timeentry to it showing up in google sheets. We know its delayed because we have creation column of Now(), which might have been Thursday. Yet in the spreadsheets it’s mixed in with everyone elses Monday timesheets
Browser tabs don’t work when minimised
We have a multistage action that copies 200+ items in sheet A to sheet B depending on some data in Sheet C (where the action is call). This thing chugs along and takes maybe 5 to 10mins to create those 200 rows. If the user has 2 tabs open in switches to a different one then the above process seems to become paused
Sum(Select(… commands fail do not work
As I said above, the user creates a timesheet. Then in a subtable they list the items they have fitted that day. We have a formula that has to check this item against currently 7000 other items that all the other App users have fitted. To make sure that 2 people can’t both say they fitted the same item. In a browser this works fine. But from the phones we get 10-20 entires per week where the user has been able to create a duplicate of someone else’s work. Its like the phone app reads the table and cannot see the work other people have done. Could this be because background sync doesn’t work when the App is minimised on a phone?
Has anyone else seen anything similar?
