Designing applications for offline mode

Updated on February 7, 2022

Design mobile apps that operate reliably on mobile devices, regardless of the connection status. To ensure that your mobile app works without a network connection, apply the best practices for configuring settings differently from online-only apps.

For example: Your task as a developer is to create an offline-enabled mobile app for creating and advancing expense claims, even if the device is not connected to a network. By following the best practices for application design, you ensure that your mobile app performs as expected and displays the information that users need in any situation.
Note: When you modify the design of your existing offline-enabled app, ensure that you propagate your changes to mobile devices. For more information, see Propagating application model changes to offline-enabled mobile apps.
