Properties are not syncing on a delay of one screen



In an Android mobile application, properties are set on the ClientCache via post Javascript of Simple Questions from PegaSurvey.

Submitting the Simple Questions synchronizes back to the server, but the properties set by post Javascript are not updated right away.

Only after user does submit the second screen that the values set on the first screen's post Javascript appear on the clipboard.

  4. Create a case and assign it to an operator that will access the case from the Mobile device.
  5. Submit the first survey question.
  6. On the Mobile device, submit the second survey question.
