My client is using iPads to record crop data, including photos, then syncing on return to the office. They want to have 8 years of photo archives, plus current year.

I foresee storage issues on their iPads, so my questions are:

Can I store the images in a separate location on the host, and have the hi-res on the iPad swapped with a low-res version from the host?

I don't need help with the structure (yet), but I am wondering if this kind of synchronization and file swap is feasible using GoZync?

Even a link to some documentation would be much appreciated.

Hi Balderd,

Thanks for reaching out regarding your client's ProZync solution.

Off the top of my head, I'd suggest looking into Custom Field Mapping: https://docs.gozync.com/article/286-custom-field-mapping

Using that, I believe you could upload the full-res photo field from your mobile file to the hosted file, and download the low-res photo back to the device. This way you wouldn't be pulling any of the full-res photos down to the devices.

GoZync is now being supported by Geist Interactive, our co-authors on this project. I’ve emailed your request to them at support@geistinteractive.com and they’ll likely comment here with more details or suggestions on how to accomplish this.

Sincerely,

KC
