At the end of January SugarCRM announced that it released Sugar Mobile version 4.1.0. There are four new features in the new edition of mobile and they all revolve around offline mode. In this blog post, we will discuss what offline mode is and then what new capabilities are included in 4.1.0.
Offline mode was built for sales reps using mobile that need to access Sugar records while they have no connection to the internet. This scenario occurs when a field rep visits an Account or Contact who is located in a remote or rural area with limited cellular service. Or when they are traveling on an airplane and remember something they need to record in Sugar. The mobile device will cache records (up to a certain number per module) for offline viewing. It will also cache any offline changes you make to records and sync once you are reconnected to a cellular tower or internet service.
The following changes are included in Sugar Mobile 4.1.0:
