    Hello Sanjeev,

    1. to import data you must to put the database offline (Desconnect it from the cloud).

    2. The same answer for the pont 1.

    3. If you add columns or import data, then you will need to connect the database to the cloud and publish tha app again  and the users will need to download the new version of the app.

    Pls clarify a bit.

    1. If I add data to offline (and online) database, I don't need to re-publish my app. Right? But can I add columns to my online data without making it offline?

    2. If I want to import some data, I have to make my database offline first. But in the meantime, what will end users experience? I mean won't their apps stop working?

    3. If I want to add some columns to my data, do I have to re-publish my app or it can be done without republishing also?

    4. If republishing is needed, then what will happen to those users who don't update their apps? What data will old apps reflect to the users?

    Pls answer them here or in the other thread. Wherever you like. I've been waiting since yesterday. And also answer some other queries going on in other threads (like why simulation is showing erroneous view).

    Hello Sanjeev:

     

    1. when you put the database offline (disconnect it from the cloud), once you will put the database online again  (connected again to the cloud) you will need to republish the app .

    You will need to put the database offline (in local) when:

    - you need to add columns;

    - change the name of the columns

    - import export some database.

     

    2. If you import some data, you have to put the database offline first, and in the meantime the user technically can't have access to the database that you are updating. But usually the device save the data in the cache so the users are able to see the old data in the app, even if it is temporary offline.

    If you try to disconnect the database from the cloud you will see a pop  up message which advise you about what is going to happen if you put the database offline.

     

    3. If I want to add some columns to my data, do I have to re-publish my app or it can be done without republishing also?

    YES (as the first answer)

    4. If republishing is needed, then what will happen to those users who don't update their apps? What data will old apps reflect to the users?

    The users will need to download the new version of the app. 

     

     

    Kind regards

    After reading your answers, two further questions erupted.

    1. If I add the data to a offline or online data, then I don't have to republish the app and user can continuously have access to all databases. But if instead of adding data manually, I import a few records (add a few records in the end of the database by importing csv records), then I have to republish the app. WHY SO?? What diff does it make to mobincube if I'm manually writing additional data or giving it thru a CSV file?

    2. If I republish the app for any reason, what happens when old users run my app. Do they simply keep getting errors or they're shown some msg that they should update the app (and only then the error they're facing will go away)?

    3. Isn't there a way in which while we're editing our database, even then app users could keep viewing the data (even if the older data). Because sometimes the data may not be their in their mobile cache. E.g., perhaps, we could download a copy of all the data from the cloud, keep editing it as we need, and then in an instant, remove the old database and put up the new one (or remove all the records from the old database and fill it with all new records). Is it possible?

    Pls resolve these and my other (critical) queries.
