Working with offline-enabled mobile apps
Even when the connection to the network is unreliable and the server might not always be available, with offline-enabled mobile apps users can continue working in the application.
Pega Platform provides the tools to build offline-enabled mobile apps for a seamless mobile user experience. For apps that you build with the offline capability, users can create a case and complete any of the assignments from the worklist, without the need to access the network. When you design and develop offline-enabled mobile apps, you configure certain settings differently from online-only mobile apps.
- Designing apps for offline mode
Design mobile apps that operate reliably on mobile devices, regardless of the connection status. To ensure that your mobile app works without a network connection, apply the best practices for configuring settings differently from online-only apps.
- Enabling case processing in offline-enabled mobile apps
Improve the usability of your mobile app with offline functionality. With an offline-enabled mobile app, users can advance existing cases, create new cases, and open pages, even if the users' mobile devices cannot connect with the server.
- Understanding offline features
When you design an application to work on a mobile device, and then expand the application to let users create and advance cases offline, to ensure that your application operates reliably without a network connection, get familiar with a detailed description of individual offline-supported features.
- Server-side postprocessing in offline mode
By using an offline option in the case type settings, you can invoke or skip the server-side postprocessing of a flow action and question smart shape for offline-enabled cases. By default, the Only perform postprocessing on client check box is cleared.
