Awesome soft, but when working with remote database SambaPos is missing the ability to operate offline in the events of temporary conection loss.
The feature is for example used by OpenBravo on a browser… if the internet goes down, it continues to store transactions locally until it reconects to server.
I asked around regarding working with remote databases on the forum, most advised that it is not a reliable idea… yet the website advertises “Manage and control all branches from headquarter. Get realtime reports, change menus and prices, track workflow”., fine I know this can all happend while having connectivity, but ISPs are unreliable…
I am hoping this will be implemented, and one of the uses I am planing is: to walk-away from the store with a tablet and take orders, take payments, etc from the offices around the block (right now is all done with a notepad; the tablet does have GSM conectivity but once entered some building areas, the signal gets poor and makes SambaPos crash due to loosing connection).
