Offline Capabilities

As of FieldEdge 3.0, the mobile app can be used offline. Changes made while offline are synced back to your nation whenever the data connection becomes available again. Syncing happens automatically and in the background. Not all features are available offline and for now, we have focused on making canvassing possible without a data connection.

Preparing for an offline canvass

To start a walk while you are offline, you will need to download the list beforehand. To do this: create a new Walk, select a list and then tap Save for Later.

Start a walk offline

To start a saved Walk while offline, go to Canvass menu, find your Walk and tap it to start. You will be taken directly to the list view. The map view will not be available when starting your walk offline.
