  • If the new wine don’t appear in the list, push the refresh button next to the “+” button to refresh the list from the server.

When the app shows the welcome screen on any of the iPads, it will check whether there have been any changes to the wine list on the server and will update the wine list locally on the iPads (if an Internet connection is available).

Note about the synchronization mechanism: when a synchronisation between the server and one of the iPad is performed, a local version of the list is stored on the device, which prevents any issue for customers if the Internet connection is down.
