Re: tracker capture: keep data on phone after log-out?


Hello Natalie,

The Android data capture app at the moment is configured to delete all
locally stored data during logout. Reason probably is because, when you
need to login again, it needs to connect to the server and verify your
credentials and if possible update the forms if there are any changes.
In your case where users need to be able to search locally, they can search
and download the data to the phone after login and they will be able to do
the search.
