I asked this question before but haven't gotten a response, so I'd like to rephrase it a bit: 

 

How does ftrack intend for artists to work when we're offline and can't connect to ftrack?

 

Is there something already in place that I don't know about? 

 

The reason I ask is because when something goes wrong in the pipeline and we're unable to connect to ftrack, we're unable to work.  Ideally we'd be able to continue working on our local server- managing assets, publishing assets, importing assets, creating tasks, opening tasks, etc.  It would all still work.  When the connection is returned, ftrack would grab all that data and send it to the cloud where we could start to leverage the website again.

Hi Mike,

 

Offline support for ftrack is currently not something we've got in place. To achieve this at the moment you'll have to wrap the API calls and retry them if you are temporarily offline. Doing this for a longer time might be cumbersome though.

 

Are you expecting/experiencing a lot of downtime for your internet connection?

 

Regards,

Carl
