Cloud Backup and Restore

With iWalkObservation v11.3.2, users can backup their entire toolset to the cloud through iWalkObservation Cloud Sync Services. On the iPad/iPhone, File Maker Go 16 or better is, and an additional plugin is needed for long time users on the PC or Mac computers. Be sure you are using the most current version of iWalkObservation by checking for an update on the config menu screen. An active iWalkObservation subscription is required..

Restoring from the cloud

First, let us understand the difference between "merge" and "replace" when restoring data from the cloud.

"Merge" will combine all your data from the current device with the data in the cloud. This is the perfect option if you have recently completed changes to walkthrough or configuration data on more than one device. Merge will combine those changes on the current device. It will not combine the changes in the cloud. So, once you have merged data, you will want to back up again to the cloud to have the same data in the cloud.

"Replace" will replace all your current data on the current device with the data in the cloud. This is a perfect solution for ensuring all your devices have the most recent data, walkthroughs and configuration changes. Make sure the device used to backup to the cloud is one that has all the data and changes you want. Both the merging and replacing of data cannot be undone.
