How possible to make a module with offline capability (like POS, so users can work without a connection and have their transactions pushed to the server when they do have a connection).
I have an inconsistent internet connection . as well as I have nearly 15 transaction per hour . having that inconsistent internet connection is customer losing . Since I can do nothing about the connection , my best solution as far as I can see is to make the module partially offline . Same as what is used in POS . but I have really no Idea how to implement such function to my module since it is never been done before as far as my research told me at least for the projects that are available to be accessed .
So , What are your thoughts ?
thank you for your time
I think the POS module only save sale order in the browser cache, which mean that if you refresh the page, sale orders will be lost.
I think you should also create something that could export those data to something more reliable than browser cache. I did not think a lot about this, but being able to export your data to a CSV file for example could be great. If you lose your connection, you export what could not be synchronized with the server, and you'll be able to import them later :)
