The Taskbar is oriented toward the upper-left corner of the application. It shows the following command buttons: the Start button and the Work Offline button:
Start Button –This button takes you to the main page.
Work Offline Button – You have two options:
- Work Offline – Previously known as “Offline Mode”, this option initiates a slimmed down version of OFS Field, which now functions as a simple Work Order management wizard, and processes all data on the user’s computer. Data is synchronized with the database only by user request, or based on a schedule defined in the operating system.
- Work Offline (Reset) – “(Reset)” clears all caches to synchronize information from scratch, whereas “Work Offline” (above) modifies from an existing cached database, The process takes longer, but is recommended when OFS Pro updates to a newer version, or if you’re having trouble getting OFS Field to start up.
