Is this behaviour typical? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Sync turned on for MobileMe.

Auto Sync OFF

Update some data.
Click Sync Now

Mobile Me:
Check that OmniFocus.ofocus shows time of last update correctly ie from Desktop


Click sync button on iphone.
At end of sync data is not updated as I would expect.

Omni Focus asks if I want to reopen document to bring data up to date.
If I accept this it uses data saved from iPhone.

Sometimes it works correctly and sometimes it doesn't.

One solution is:

Backup Database and Quit OmniFocus

Delete OmniFocus.ofocus

In Settings click Reset Database.

Restart OmniFocus and sync.

Check OmniFocus.ofocus has appeared.

In Settings set Syncronization back to MobileMe (It gets set to None when you Rest Database)

Sync to get "Clean Database"
(Note: If you click the Sync arrows at the bottom the app sometimes crashes on the iPhone. It seems safer when in the OmniFocus is in main view - although on my most recent test it didn't crash)

The app then states "reloading new data" although I would argue it's not reloading because it didn't exist before.

That's probably like the famous Apple "Canceling" ..... it always looks wrong this side of the pond.

Moral: Back up database Locally on desktop. frequently.

Latest build of OF (103907) and test run using Wi-Fi
