!! Turning Off Deletion

If you want to manage the deletion of mobile records yourself, you can turn off GoZync's management of it. Simply add an "Exit Script" line at the beginning of the script "Delete Records Not In This List (  $IDsToKeep  )" in GoZyncMobile

Here is an example of how deletes can really help with your workflow.

-> Let's say I'm a home health care aide and each morning I sync down to my iPad the half dozen or so patients I need to visit that day. So on Monday I get 6 patient records on my iPad.

-> If I have %newwin% [[http://www.seedcode.com/gomaps | GoMaps]] I know just where they are, but that's another story =)

-> At the end of the day I sync my visit notes back up to the hosted files. Now one of the patients I saw on Monday, Beth, called up to the office an needs something else, so the folks at the office assigned me to visit her again tomorrow.

-> So on Tuesday morning I sync again and the [[downloading found sets | filter]] in GoZync pulls down just the people I'm assigned to see on Tuesday. Since Beth is on my list for Tuesday, she stays on my iPad and gets some new notes from the office. The other 5 people I saw on Monday no longer match my filter criteria (folks assigned to me for Monday) so they're deleted from my iPad and replaced with my Tuesday patients.

-> And if another aide calls in sick and the office has to assign two of their patients to me as well, all I have to do is sync again and I have those two new patients as well. Both of which will be deleted from my iPad when they no longer match my day's assignment.

-> GoZync handles all of this: deleting any records on your mobile device that no longer match your filter criteria.

Now this means that you may want to prevent users from pulling down new records if they have [[unzynced records]] on their device, but you don't have to.

!! Turning this off

While this deletion behavior is often just what you want, for very large data sets it may be faster to take over the duties of deleting records yourself instead of having GoZync do it. If you have many thousands of records, this can make things ''much'' faster. Learn how to turn this off [[Turning Off Deletes | here]]

Well, next time that mobile user pulls down records, they'll also pull a list of all the orders they are supposed to have on the device: any records not on that list (because they were deleted from the host or because they are no longer "ready") will be deleted from the user's device. This makes it very easy to craft workflows where the user only has the records they need: you [[DownloadingFoundSets | build a found set of records]] appropriate for that user, and GoZync does the rest.

Now this means that you may want to prevent users from pulling down new records if they have [[unzynced records]] on their device, but you don't have to.

!! Deleting records that don't (no longer) belong to me

A record doesn't actually have to be deleted from the host / server to be deleted from the users mobile device: the record would also be removed from the users device if it no longer "belongs" to that user.

For example, let's say that you've scripted GoZync to only your orders that are marked "Ready"
