Does Survey Solutions support data exchange from one tablet to another with Bluetooth, Point-to-Point or USB connection?
No, current version of Survey Solutions does not support such data exchange. We see no reliable way to maintain and manage multiple copies of the same questionnaire on several tablets. While we realize the benefits of such transfer protocols in certain situations, the risk of data losses is too high for us to implement this feature.September 7, 2016
