    we are increasingly using Alto and also Soprano in our VDI environment , the desktop devices have no local storage, Can Soprano be configured to store queued transactions to a network drive.
    Obviously with no network Soprano could not work but would be useful when the server is unavailable. I know that at the last user group Anthony seemed to suggest that financial year end roll over could be completed in minutes but the reality is that it takes much longer to disable and re-enable services etc and to complete a full back up.

    Hi Lin,

    it will depend on how your VDI environment is configured.

    Soprano is a web application, so needs a web browser to function and it expects a modern (ish) HTML5-compatible browser environment to do so.

    It uses a number of HTML 5 features to store its offline queue, one of which is called localStorage, but that’s local in terms of the browser. That is, the transactions are stored where-ever the browser is actually running.

    So if your VDI environment stores a user’s browser state between sessions, you should be OK to use Soprano in this way.

    It is a bit of an unknown though, so would need testing your side. It’s not something we’ve done before.
