Business value

You can now select the columns of tables that are downloaded on mobile devices for offline use. The fewer columns you select, the faster the app downloads the data on the device for usage without connectivity.

Feature details

In the settings of your offline-enabled app in the maker portal, you can customize the offline profile for an optimized data loading experience for your users. For each table, you can select the columns that are required in the app:

  • Use the suggested columns computed by the system.
  • Manually select the columns.

In the main page for the offline profile, you can see for each table how many columns are selected for download.
