|How often is the app updated? Where can I find information on what has changed?||Updates to the app are published on a regular basis. We recommend you enable auto-update for the Replicon app so you’re always using the latest version. Noteworthy changes to the app are listed in the release notes published on our community.|

Using the app
|How often does data sync between a mobile app and the web version of Polaris?||Syncing between versions should happen immediately. In the app, you may need to pull-to-refresh pages before you’ll be able to see new data entered in the web version.|
|How do I refresh data that displays in the app?||You can pull-to-refresh (pull downwards on any screen) to refresh what data you're viewing.|
|How can I change the order the icons appear on the iOS app?||If you have more than 5 icons across the bottom of your app, you can change the order in which they appear. Tap the More button, then tap Edit to access the setting.|
|Does the app record my location when I punch in or out?||The app may record your location depending on your company's punch entry policy. It may be set to require the location, or to capture it if it is available.|
|What does this message mean: There are data conflicts between server and device. Which data would you like to keep?||If you use the Android Mobile app in offline mode, you may occasionally see the message above. It means that data on your mobile app differs from the data that Polaris has stored for you. If you have changed your Replicon data on the mobile device (for example, entered time in a timesheet) while you were offline, select Client to keep the data and upload it to Polaris.|
|Can I use the app when I don't have an internet connection?||The app has an offline mode that supports clocking in and clocking out. You'll need an internet connection to carry out any other tasks using the app.|
