Can you work in an offline instance and backup to an online instance?

I want to work on my OpenERP instance on my laptop computer at home (no internet at home, thus not the option to connect to the online instance), and then when I get to the office, to be able to do a backup of my instance on the laptop and update to the online instance. How would this work if it is possible? Thanks

Hi Mike,

There is no synchronisation available at this moment. You could do a backup of the live environment and restore it on the laptop. When you come back do the opposite. But this option only works if you're the only one working in OpenERP.

A other option is work with PostgreSQL replication tools. But I haven't heard of any success at this moment.

Thanks for your response. I only work on the accounting aspect. Other members work on different pieces, so the backup of the live instance and restoring would not work as I am not the only user. I will look into the PostgreSQL replication tools to see what that option is.

Is this still the same today? or is there a way now to work on your Odoo instance offline and then synhronize the changes when online?.

I look forward to your feedback.

Many thanks.
