Offline functionality in Workforce

    I just tested offline capabilities in Workforce.  I was happy to see that, after having captured tasks assigned to me, I could put my phone in airplane mode and still access the assignments.  I could also still pull up Collector and capture data on a map that I had cached to my device (the data must be synced once back in online mode which is expected).

     

    However, what I could NOT do is capture any information in Workforce, like changing status of the work assignment to In Progress or Completed, in an offline mode.  I must wait until I am back in the office and online until I can do that.

     

    It would be great if I could capture status of the assignment while offline which I could sync after returning to civilization (essentially the same workflow as in Collector).

     

    Great tools...looking forward to enhancements over the years.  Thanks for the good work on these.
