How can we improve SharePlus?

More aggressive background syncing option

Right now the Background sync doesn't work reliably for syncing offline documents. I would really like to see options for automatic background sync, and then scheduled sync every x minutes.

    Brydon,

    Thank you for your feature request!

    SharePlus syncs automatically, after the app has been idle for a minimum of 30 seconds (depending on the app’s main settings).

    Leaving the app idle will trigger a synchronization.

    Scheduled synchronization couldn’t take place while the app is in the background and, in most cases, having the sync process take place while you use the app can decrease the app’s performance because of heavy network use.

    I’d like to know if you had any other comment on this feature request.

    Regards,

        Hi Anand,
        Unfortunately iOS does not allow apps to run background processes.
        That's why on iOS SharePlus does not sync content when the app is not active.
        If the app starts consuming resources while on background the operating system will kill the app automatically.
        That does not happen on Android, where we implemented full background sync support.

        The current app does not cater to the needs of people who are mainly on the road (no connection to corporate network). These people would want the documents to be AUTOMATICALLY sync'ed when they connect to corporate network without having the need to launch the app (and leaving it in the foreground for sync).
