i have been trying to use my form offline on my android smartphone, but it didnt seem to be working.

You should be able to use your Android smartphone offline - please see the documentation here and here.

Re: Offline form on android mobile

thank you for the quick response.

 when i use my form offline, it initialized correctly, but when i try to get list and show some views (and initialize them)  i get the following message:

what can i do about it? are there any other things i should do differently , when it comes to  offline mobile forms.

 

also is it possible to start a workflow that sends emails on offline mode, as soon as mobile is online again?

Have you had a look at this page in the help files?: Offline Availability 

 

You will see that there are a number of considerations you need to take into account when creating a form for offline usage, one of which is the need to execute any submit rules within a "batch" execution type. One thing to be aware of when using a batch execution type, is that you cannot guarantee the sequence of execution of rules e.g. you might have 2 rules, the first of which creates a parent record and returns an ID value which you use in a second rule to create one or more child records. All the rules within the batch execution type will execute at the same time, which means that you cannot guarantee that rule 1 will execute before rule 2.

 

With regards to the sending of emails question, yes the workflow should send an email message when the form come online again and starts the workflow process.

do you happen to know if subform\subview are compatible with offline mode?

Re: Offline form on android mobile

Is there for Android an app or something that is like Google Forms but works completely offline and allows to feed a table such as Excel (or any other excel-similar format) with simple data (words, numbers)? I didn't find any solution to this but can't believe that it doesn't exist! I would like to track my spending and therefore it would be much easier to have a form to enter the data on my Android instead of always opening an Excel or Open Office sheet on my Android.
