The functionality available through TAMobile 7 will be displayed to you through the main menu.

Additional screens can be configured and you can access these by swiping Left and Right on your main menu screen.


Records stuck on device

In rare occurrences, mobile action data might get saved on the device but cannot be saved to the server because of an exception on the server side. There is a hidden "Send to Support" option on the Unsynced Records page.

To use the feature, the mobile user will need to:

  • From the home screen, open the slide-out menu
  • Tap on the Unsynced Records menu item. If this menu item does not exist, records has been pushed successfully already
  • Tap and hold the Unsynced Records text at the top of the screen. A popup menu appears
