Syncing Data and Locked records

****Note these features are only available in ValuePRO iOS 8.13****

Locked Jobs

A record that has been downloaded to the iPad is termed as locked if it would not be downloaded to the iPad were it to be re-synced.

This may happen if a Job is updated on ValuePRO Standard Edition with a new status such as "Approved for Release" or "Job Completed".


If data is entered on the iPad it will not be transferred to ValuePRO Standard Edition either by syncing the iPad or if Continuous Updates are in use.


Full Sync

 When a full sync is performed and Continuous Updates is not being used, a new Sync stage has been introduced, "Precheck - Check for locked jobs".

If any jobs that have been amended on the device are locked, then the sync will pause and ask the user what should be done with the data for any records that are locked.



There are 2 options for each record that is locked

1. Discard

This discards any data that has been entered for that job on the device.

2. Overwrite

This will cause any data entered on the device to be uploaded to ValuePRO Standard Edition, irrespective of the Status of the Job.


Once all Jobs have been identified as either to be discarded or Overwriting the Standard Edition, the Continue button will be enabled.


Tapping on Continue will continue with the Sync.
Tapping on Cancel will cancel the Sync.

Continuous Updates

If continuous updates are in use when the iPad send the data to the standard edition an Alert screen will be displayed.


If the data needs to be uploaded to ValuePRO Standard Edition then the user should enter the Job Number in the field presented and tap on the Overwrite button. This will allow the device to update the Standard Edition.

Any further updates to the Job will also overwrite ValuePRO standard edition without further prompting. If a different Job is selected any further updates to the locked job will cause the Alert to be re-displayed.


If the user wishes to discard the data entered on the iPad, tapping on the Cancel button will mark the Job as in error. Any further updates will not cause the Alert to be re-displayed.


Sync Status

If a job is marked as an error, then it ill be listed then it will be listed on the Sync Status Screen



Tapping on Retry will mark all updates for the Job to be re-uploaded to ValuePRO Standard Edition.

Tapping on Ignore will cause an Alert screen to be displayed.


Tapping on Ignore First Error for Job, will skip the first error for the Job and attempt to update the Standard Edition with any subsequent updates.

Tapping on Ignore All errors for Job, will skip all the Updates for the Job.
