The change list is an optional part of Resco mobile apps. It displays records changed (also created, deleted) in the local database on the device, waiting for synchronization.

Enabling the change list

  1. In the app, go to the Setup / Settings screen.
  2. Scroll down to Appearance and enable Change List.
  3. When you return to the home screen, a new menu item, Change List, should be visible at the very top.

Using the change list

Tap Change List to display the records on the Unsynced Data Changes view.

The following functions are available in this list:

  • Use the Search bar on top to quickly locate records.
  • Tap any record to display its details.
  • The status bar at the bottom displays summary information about all changes.
  • Tap View Edits to display changes in pseudo-JSON format. This list largely corresponds to the data sent to the server during synchronization. (The only difference is that binary data are omitted.)
