Synchronizing via Wi-Fi

Synchronizing via Wi-Fi


To synchronize, follow the steps below:

Connect to Wi-Fi

For more on how to create a local Wi-Fi network or connect to Wi-Fi, see I want to create local Wi-Fi networks I want to connect to Wi-Fi

Enter Synchronize mode

In order to synchronize, both devices must have the Synchronize screen open.

Devices available for syncing will be listed on the Synchronize screen.

Remember that in order for a device to appear in the list, it must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network, have the Synchronize screen open, and be using the same project configuration. You can confirm which configuration Mapeo Desktop is currently using by consulting the white bar at the bottom of the Synchronize screen. For troubleshooting on this step, see I have sync issues.

Start synchronization

Once available devices appear in the list, confirm the identity of the device you plan to synchronize with by consulting the unique identification number on the other user's device.

To see the unique identification number of a Mapeo Mobile device, check the right side of the navy blue bar on the Synchronize screen in Mapeo Mobile.

Important: Keep the Synchronize screen open on both devices until the synchronization process is complete.
