  • Work offline: This option enables the Professional Planner offline mode. In this mode, the entered data are only processed after executing the Update Data command: New data are updated only when opening documents, switching or updating manually. This mode is particularly useful for remote access to the PP server system because overload of the data communication lines is minimized. Starting with professional planner 8, you can switch between offline and online mode via a symbol in the Status bar.
