This would show the last known table schema and data that was shown, but would allow to make records and sync when the mobile device comes back online. Issues would be resolved via the web to validate issues.
Airtable Offline would also be a big benefit in Legal. We’ve been testing the legal case analysis template but our attorney’s are scared to bring something into the courtroom that requires a connection due to possiblity of loosing connection in a courtroom.
We travel in rural areas overseas and do not always have mobile access. My organization cannot use this product unless it works offline.
Offline is crucial to our organization being able to use this - like google docs offline. Sync when it gets reconnected to the internet
Is there an offline feature for both the mobile and desktop app? If so how do you enable it? Everyone uses their computers but do not always have wifi. You have an app but there is no way to work offline. What is the point of an app if it does the exact same thing as the website
Airtable update please!! With regards to offline mode, why can’t we have airtable work like excel? When a user opens the app and switches on offline mode (e.g., via toggle-like switch or button as another user had previously suggested), then the airtable sheet automatically becomes unavailable to be edited by other members who may want to be working on the same document at the same time. In excel, if a colleague of mine has the document open, then I am unable to make edits to that very same document. Instead, I enter a “read-only” mode, and must wait for my colleague to close the document before I am able to make changes to it. Would a similar logic be applicable to airtable documents??
Any news if this will happen anytime soon? I’d love to switch from trello.
I am looking to use Airtable for my class recordkeeping but we are frequently in rural areas with no internet access for sometimes weeks at a time, without this feature I don’t think I can use Airtable for this purpose. Are there any plans for this yet?
Plus 1 for offline mode. Maybe tables will load faster if they’re stored on the computer. Anything to make it load faster!!
Today, the ONLY reason I am not moving to a paying base is because Airtable does not offer any offline mode…
Me too. I have many uses for it but without offline mode I cannot count on it the great outdoors, or in rural towns where I travel to. Offline mode is a necessity.
