The Save to Cloud feature allows users to save work on a submission so it can be continued later on the same device or another device. This function also allows submissions to persist through clearing data in GoCanvas and uninstalling GoCanvas from a device.
In addition to the Save to Cloud feature, submission data is automatically saved on the device (or, "locally") each time a user leaves a screen. This includes navigating between screens in a form, or completing fields that capture data on separate screens, such as Photo, Signature, and GPS.
Note: You will not be able to save a submission when in the process of adding an item to a Loop screen. Finish adding your item, or return to the root list screen to save.
Save to Cloud requires a stable connection to function and a user must navigate to the Settings on their specific device and enable the feature:
To save to cloud, tap the Menu button (three dots) in the upper right corner and select Save & Close:
Type in a name for the submission-in-progress, then tap Save & Close on the new text box:
The submission will save locally and to Cloud, so users can resume the submission on their current device or another device. If no connection is available when a Save & Close occurs, the submission will be tagged and will save to Cloud on the next sync.
Additionally, if Save to Cloud is not enabled on a device when the submission is saved, it will only be saved locally. You will need to complete the 'Save & Close' step AFTER enabling Save to Cloud for a locally stored submission to be available on other devices from the cloud.
All Save to Cloud actions are logged in the Revision History for a submission, similar to submission edits.
Please note that Save to Cloud is not supported in the Windows Desktop Client
