I'm looking for details about the offline mode in Mobile app.
Some tests show that cache can populate a previously selected people in people picker, a value in a lookup field, ...
What are the limits of this functionality ?
Is there a predictable behaviour of the cache ?
Which fields are supported ?

I am depending heavily on the Mobile app, but have encountered quite some problems.
One I discovered yesterday is the ability of the app to automatically update the forms - take a look at this thread: Nintex Mobile - Automatically update form on devices
It is not directly what you are asking here, but I thought you might find it interesting anyway 🙂
Hi Jean-François Legras,
So for list lookup we automatically download cache list items on the device. However a few things to consider:
For People Picker control:
Hopefully this helps.
How does the the App handle images offline? We are looking for a way to have a status indicator on the form and are referencing images from a Public url (Red, amber and green dots). It doesn't appear that these images get cached in the form when downloaded, as they are not shown when offline. Is there a suggested solution for a requirement like this?
Nintex Mobile scans the form definition for images and queue them for download in the background. The image control is configured to only display images that have been downloaded for offline consumption. The only reason I can think for the images not displaying offline might be if the image's URL is being dynamically generated and that is interfering with the image control's ability to locate the offline image.
If you send an export of your form definition to email@example.com and outline your problem, we can have a look and find what is impacting the offline images for you.
