Using GoZync's Logs

The logs in GoZync are completely customizable and can be a great help in finding your way through GoZync's scripts. Here are some tips for making the most out of them: using Zync Logs.

There is a Zync Logs tab in both GoZyncMobile and GoZyncHosted. The difference is that GoZyncHosted shows the most recent log for each synced device; GoZyncMobile only show that device's log.

The contents of the mobile and hosted logs will be the same if the sync was allowed to finish with the connection to the host still open. If the connection to the host breaks before the sync is complete you'll see a partial log in GoZyncHosted and the complete log will be in GoZyncMobile.

Log History

GoZync only saves the latest sync log for each device. Those logs are written by FileMaker scripts, though, so you could alter the script to save copies in a new related table of your own design. The finished log is processed in the script "Save Log To Disk" in GoZyncMobile and the hosted files are still open at that point, in case you wanted to set the log contents to a new record in a hosted table.
