-> '''2.''' When it's done, take a look at the inbox tab of GoZyncConnector and you'll see that you've uploaded that invoices as a [[TheDocument | document]].

-> '''3.''' Now select that document in the inbox and click "Process Selected..." and you'll be sending that document into Invoices.fp7.

That is the basic way GoZync works, though it is much more impressive when Mobile is running in FileMaker Go.

As you're integrating GoZync into your files, you may want to work like this-- with both Mobile, GoZyncConnector, and your solution on the same machine-- rather than uploading things to your server.

!! Checking it out using FileMaker Server

Next you'll likely want to serve the files in the Host folder.

-> '''1.''' Quit FileMaker and upload these to your FileMaker Server. You're just playing around now, so you can [[security | secure]] the files if you want, or do that later.

-> '''2.''' Once the files from Host are on your FileMaker Server, open Mobile.fp7 and change the file references in Mobile to point to your served instances of GoZyncConnector and GoZync.

-> From FileMaker's menus select File / Manage / External Data Sources... and edit each of the two sources shown (one for GoZync and one for GoZyncConnector).

-> Each source has two file references, a local one that looks like "file:../Host/GoZync" or "file:../Host/GoZyncConnector" which you'll leave alone in each case, and one that looks like:

--> fmnet:/yourserver.com/GoZync

-> Replace "yourserver.com" with the name or IP address of your server. Do that for both the GoZync and the GoZyncConnector references.

-> Then close FileMaker Pro.

-> '''3.'''  Now change the name of the folder "Host" to "xHost". This will temporarily break Mobile.fp7's ability to find the local versions of the GoZync files, so it willl instead look for the ones on your server. (You have to do this when all the relevant GoZync files are closed.)

-> '''4.'''  At this point you can repeat the steps from "Playing with GoZync..." above, this time uploading invoices from your local copy of Mobile.fp7 to the ''served'' instances of GoZyncConnector and Invoices.

!! Playing on FileMaker Go

Now that you've pointed your copy of Mobile.fp7 at your server, you're ready to place Mobile on your iPad and see how this really works. Once Mobile is on your device it can download new copies of itself, but you'll need to get it there manually the first time: either email the file to yourself and check that mail on your iPad, or use iTunes to drag the file over to your iPad. (Make sure Mobile.fp7 is closed before you do any of this.)

Once Mobile.fp7 is on your device, you can resume the "Playing with GoZync..." steps at the start of this article; , this time uploading invoices from your iPad copy of Mobile.fp7 to the ''served'' instances of GoZyncConnector and Invoices.

!! Getting to know GoZync

GoZync ships with two sample files in addition to the GoZync framework itself. In the folder Local, you'll find "Mobile.fp7" which will eventually be the remote file on your iPad, and in the folder Host. you'll see "Invoices.fp7" which acts as a placeholder for your hosted solution: the file your data will end up in.

Using these two files, you can start playing with GoZync and see how it works before you integrate it into your solution.
