I hope I’m not hijacking this thread but I had my first experience with offline sync last night that I wanted to share too.
I added a new task in Android and made a tag change and tasks owner etc and put my phone down. Later I noticed down the bottom of the screen is said something like “3 offline sync changes pending”. I thought, okay cool, it will sync shortly but it didn’t and each change popped up with an error timeout saying it failed.
My problem is, those changes are now gone on the phone (I can’t find them anyway) and have not synced to the server and it appears the new task has just vanished. Offline sync might work when it detects no data connection, but it seems that when there are server issues the sync doesn’t retry later, it just fails. At least that was my experience.
Intuitively i wanted to tap the message about the pending sync, but nothing happened, no option to force an upload or take me to trust.asana.com (which I eventually learned about after googling “is asana working” lol) where I discovered there were big service problems at that time.
Fortunately I remember what the task was and can recreate it, but if I have made lots of fine-grained changes or brain dumped something important, this would have made me very angry to lose all those changes.
