Downloading Found Sets
Can someone in the field download just their data?
Yes. GoZync lets you build a found set of records to come down to the mobile device. This could be the records for a given user ("my contacts") or the records for that user which are flagged to be done that day ("my appointments for today"). You get to build the found set using whatever scripts you'd like--you're in FileMaker after all--and GoZync will package up the resulting found set for the mobile user.
Here is how it works.
There are two scripts in GoZynConnector that control bringing data down to a mobile device. The fist of these, "Get Records From Host ( RecordType )" simply branches to decide what kind of records you're looking for (are you pulling contacts or products, for example). The real work is done in the scripts called by "Get Records From Host ( RecordType )", such as the script "Package up Products" in our example file. (You might have many of these in your deployment, having copied "Package up Products" to create "Package up Contacts", "Package up Workorders", etc.)
If you look in the script "Package up Products" you'll see the following comment:
And in our example this is followed by a simple Show All Records script step... because in our example we always bring down all the products to the mobile user.
To send a subset of records to the mobile user, just replace that Show All Records step with a scripted find that grabs the records you want your user to get.
