Business value

Users can get more control over their offline experience with new, offline sync settings that help save on cellular data usage and device battery life.

Feature details

Power Apps mobile app users get two new settings in the Device status page. These settings, which apply to model-driven apps, let users control the automatic sync intervals and the connection type.

  • WiFi only: Lets users choose if their automatic sync happens on cellular networks and Wi-Fi connections or only when connected to a Wi-Fi network.
  • Auto sync: Adjust the sync interval to sync more or less frequently depending on individual needs. Users can also choose to not automatically sync at any interval, if they only want to sync on demand.
