Use this form to set up an offline profile. An offline profile defines the data that is synchronized between a store database and the offline databases at the registers. Each offline profile consists of several offline scopes. Offline scopes define the order in which data is synchronized and the database tables that are synchronized.

You can set up offline databases at the registers. The registers can then continue to perform sales and other transactions if the connection with the store database is interrupted. For more information, see Create a store database or an offline database (AX 2012 R2 and AX 2012 Feature Pack).

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.
