Syncing your tablet

To use the MyApiary app, you must first sync your tablets with your MyApiary account.
This process downloads your accounts information into a local datastore so you can use your tablet out in the field with no data connection. 

Use the SYNC button on the status bar at the top right-hand side of the MyApiary App. To synch your tablet you must have a WIFI or Cellular connection to the internet. Once synched you can complete jobs without a connection and the data will be saved.

                     

Important! You must sync your tablet before you can start using the app for the first time.
Important! Sync your tablet each day before you start when you have a connection and at the end of the day.
Important! When in the field do not log out, or your saved data will be lost.  You can only login again when you have an internet connection.
