Filemaker Go to FMS - Low cellular signal

Hi there,

have you experienced using a Filemaker Server 14 solution on Filemaker Go 14 where cellular signal is poor or even worst, in some region, there would be no signal at all.

If yes, can you please share your experience on how this solution is reliable?

For example, imagine a solution for a delivery company where pickup and delivery information (with a map) is provided, where the drivers must create PODs, with signature and capture pictures from their device.

Thanks for your help,

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

it looks like the filemaker set doesn't work without a connection
this is probably expected behavior

Reconnect to server       If you lose your network connection or the server goes down, FileMaker Pro automatically reconnects to FileMaker Server when it’s available again — just like you can with FileMaker Go. Now FileMaker Pro puts you back to where you were in your solution before you were disconnected — so you can continue right where you left off.

you need something which can work with buffered data ...
