Hi:

I have a question regarding your experience with the loading of a local
database (saved to a user's own drive or a shared drive) and current data
that is accessed from the server.

What term is more universally understood for the data when the user is
logging in and has to select the saved/local/offline data:

[ ] Use local data

or simply:

[ ] Offline

Does anyone have experience with this?

Thank you,
Jennifer

Hi Jennifer,

I'm in the middle of designing a software app that has this same
concept of local vs. server data. The software is used by Retailers to
manage products sold through Kiosks in their stores and Regional and
Store Managers have the ability to adjust pricing and availability of
these products for their own stores.

We're using the term "local" to describe the version of the data the
user works with on their desktop and "disconnected" to communicate
when the user does not have a connection to the server and cannot
publish/merge their updates with the server (aka "the mothership").

So far the terms we're using have been understood by a couple of the
top Retailers who will be using the software. I'm working on testing
the prototypes with more users in the near future...

Hope that helps!
Carrie

Not knowing much about your users or their tasks, this may be misguided but…

It might be better to avoid the concept of local/remote live/cached
data and instead choose terms that refer to more familiar models like
syncing and refreshing.

Thank you to everyone who responded for the feedback.
It has been insightful.

Yes, there is a need for both the "offline" and "live/current" data.
The tricky bit is that the data considered live is actually also
downloaded locally and stored on a user's machine. It gets updated live,
but then is stored once again locally.

I kept the question generic to see what all would come back as questions
and answers and it has been really helpful.
Thank you very much.

One last idea; you could refer to the remote location by the product
name and the local data as being 'on your computer', e.g.

Download from Widgetr

Load from your computer.

Hope this helps.
