Users of Resco Mobile CRM and other Resco mobile apps can configure some aspects of their mobile app. This configuration is usually available from the home screen by tapping Setup.
Not all configuration parameters are available on all platforms. Also, your Woodford administrator can make some of the parameters unavailable in the app (using Configuration), or even remove the Setup item from the menu.
The configuration parameters are organized into multiple sections. Modify them as needed and tap the save icon in the top right corner. Restart the application to make the changes active. Some configuration changes might additionally require a fresh synchronization.
Displays the synchronization window. You can review or modify the details of your current user and organization, or even start synchronization from here directly.

Configure your connection to DocuSign server. For more information, read how to add legally-binding digital signatures to forms.

- On – app does not require the login information each time it is launched.
- Off – after restarting the app, you only fill in the password (if the user name stays the same) or all info (if the user name has changed).
When enabled, on app start, the app requires that you log in using the fingerprint saved in your device. You can cancel the touch sensor and provide the password instead. See also a blog post explaining this use case in more detail.

You can delete your whole database from the app on your device here. All saved data and previously synchronized, can be then downloaded again with synchronizing the app with the server.
Max Attachment Size
Specify the maximum size (in Bytes) of files and attachments that are downloaded to your app during synchronization. Larger attachments can still be downloaded on demand, but they are unavailable when offline.
Max Sync Records
Set the maximum number of records that are synchronized for each menu item (entity).
If you don’t see all your contacts, accounts, orders, etc. you need to increase this number. For instance: If you have 12.000 contacts and this value is set to 10.000, 2.000 contacts will be missing in your app.
Diag. Sync Log
Troubleshooting setting. Enable if you need more detailed information written to the sync log.
Customize the entity lists that you want to have available in the home screen. Entities that you disable are still available on your device, they are just hidden from the home screen.
Your Woodford administrator can make some entities permanently unavailable in the mobile app (Manage entities) or restrict what records are synchronized (Sync Filter); this can greatly reduce synchronization times.
Internally, all metadata and data of an app project are saved to a local folder on your device. You can use the parameter AppFolder to specify the folder. This allows you to have multiple customizations (app projects) installed on a single device in parallel; in different folders. You can then simply modify the AppFolder to quickly change to a different organization/user/project.
Resco mobile apps always use a published project of the highest priority suitable for their security role; and AppFolder does not modify this behavior. You need to use a different user (or a wholly different organization) to connect to other projects.
- If you want to add a project, set AppFolder to a unique value, for example TestProject, save the configuration, and restart the app. Connect to the project; it will be saved to the folder specified.
- If you want to switch to a different project, change AppFolder to a value that you previously used for a project.
Do not use spaces or characters that cannot be used in folder names. Excluded characters depend on your device OS.
The AppFolder parameter is available on all platforms. For Windows apps, you can alternatively use the command line option
-r to achieve similar effect.
External RFID scanners can be paired with Android devices via Bluetooth and provide data for the Resco Mobile CRM application.
