What is Auto Sync?
With Auto Sync, scans are instantly recorded and queued for uploading every two (2) seconds and validation databases stored on codeREADr’s servers are synced and downloaded to the device every 2 minutes. Syncing is done in the background while the app is open so the user doesn’t have to stop scanning.
Scans are auto synced if scans get stored on-device because of connectivity issues.
Record On-Device (offline)
All scans are auto synced.
Validate in Real-Time (online) or On-Device (offline)
Scans are auto-uploaded and the updated validation database is auto-downloaded. The synced database is downloaded if it has changed (e.g. new data) or if scans have been uploaded and the service is set to check duplicate scans.
Note to advanced users (developers): Services posting scans to your own servers (see here) can deploy Auto Sync. However, if using a validation service, databases are not synced to the device from your server.
