Perform Syncing via builder instead of the handheld

This would be great if it was possible! maybe in the future?

  • May I ask what the advantage to syncing from the builder would be? I personally think a one button sync on the interface would work just as well. Instead of requiring the user to go into the settings a one button press within the interface would pull the updated information.

  • Hi Scott, I intend to use irule in the form of a remote control for an institution where the elderly live in rooms. For these multiple rooms, I do not want to travel for every little change and do the syncing room by room. Also I do not want to ask the clients to perform the syncing.

    As you said, a syncing with one button would also work if :
    1- the button is not visible.
    2- the syncing will be a background proses that we don't see and feel.

    In that case I can put the syncing button under some activity such as watching tv. So when they press tv, irule will perform the syncing in the background.

    I hope this will be possible in irule.

    Kind regards
