Sync Indicator

To create a seamless experience across our desktop and web apps, we have now updated our interface so it looks and works the same, whether you are using the desktop app for Windows or Mac, or if you’re using the online web app.

The only feature included on the desktop apps and not on the web app is the “Sync Indicator”:

The desktop app can be used offline, so you can add tasks and create projects without syncing them online. When DropTask is not connected to the internet the cloud icon on the right hand of the app will show with an exclamation mark in the middle. This means that any updates you make to DropTask won’t be synced yet. Whilst your working offline, please remember that members of your team will not see any updates you’ve made until you’ve connected to the internet and synced.

When the Cloud Icon has a ✔ in the center, it means Droptask is connected to the internet, any changes made will be synced, and that all recent changes are up to date.

The web app does not have the Sync Indicator on the top header bar because it cannot be used offline. In the rest of the help guides, we have included images from both the desktop apps and the web app, so some images will show the Sync Indicator and some won’t. For reference, the toolbar on the web app can be seen below:
