Synchronizing to different servers from same tablet

Post by wimneel »

I have several questionnaires installed on tablets, but they synchronize with different CSWeb servers.
That should not be a problem, should it? However...
If I choose "add application" from the main menu, CSEntry gives me the option to write a new URL, while suggesting the one I used before.
If I choose "update installed applications", the program prompts for a username and password, but there seems to be no way to change the URL,
Exactly the same thing happens when I press the "synchronize" button.
In the "settings" I cleared the credentials, but that seems to affect only usernames and passwords, not URLs.
What am I doing wrong?

The syncing of applications was designed with the assumption that the server stays the same for subsequent synchronizations. The development team will discuss whether the Clear Credentials action will clear the server information for CSPro 8.0.

In the meantime, if you really need to use multiple servers, I suggest that you update the application via a menu program and the syncapp function: https://www.csprousers.org/help/CSPro/s ... ction.html
