Real Time Data

  

Hi all,

What I want to know is Does Outsystems has a way to acess real time data?
For example, Can I see in a table screen the exact moment where the user of another application inserts a new event in the database?

Thanks!

Anselmo.

Hi Anselmo,

I'll answer your question, even if I think is not what you are asking.

If you want to know te EXACT moment of the insertion of a record, you need to have a field in this record where you store the Current Date Time.

So, for the question as you placed it, yes, it is possible to know this moment.

If what you want is to be ALERTED in real time that a record was inserted, than the answer is NO :)
Maybe you can do an alert that works pretty fast, but no, it will bot be "real time".

And will require lots of logic, like using push messages and so on (See Forge pushwoosh, onesignal, etc).

Hi, Eduardo.

Unfortunately, the answer for my question are in the second case.

Thanks!
