As you create and update your offline interfaces, you will need to test them on a mobile device to make sure that everything works without any errors.
This document outlines how to test and troubleshoot offline actions and tasks after you have created them.
In order to test offline interfaces, you need to:
You cannot test offline functionality on the desktop. You need to test offline forms on a mobile device using the Appian mobile application.
Offline mobile errors will not occur on the desktop. Additionally, if there are offline mobile errors, they will appear on mobile whether your device is online or offline.
To test on a mobile device:
IMPORTANT: You do not need to go offline to test the interface. The interface will behave the same way whether it is offline or not.
Pull down to refresh the interface.
IMPORTANT: Test the entire action or task completely, including all fields, or users may run into issues at runtime that will cause them to lose their work.
If an error like the following appears, troubleshoot it.
If the offline mobile action or task returns an error, troubleshoot it using the following guidance.

Check the line number in the interface expression to see if there is:
If you don't see any issues in the interface expression, try performing the same steps on the desktop version of the interface.
The desktop interface doesn't use the offline mobile evaluator. So if you get the same error on desktop, it may not be caused by offline mobile behavior. It may be caused by a general expression syntax error. Check around the line number in the interface expression to see if there is anything that could be causing the error.
