For testing, how can I republish data that's already been published?

When we're testing, it would be nice to be able to get records in the queue, publish to test, then publish again without having to load stuff back in to the queue with my device.

The easiest way to do this is with an Upload Form. You need a license key that unlocks this feature. When you do, you'll see Upload Forms listed in the Management Console > Forms Section.

  1. Create an upload form with the fields you want to use to test publishing. Whether the data in the Queue comes from a mobile device, a web form, or an uploaded spreadsheet, the publishing behavior is the same.

  2. Then, open that Upload Form in your browser and download the template to Excel.

  3. Populate your Excel document and save it as a CSV file.

  4. Upload the CSV file to the Queue

  5. Test publishing

  6. Repeat steps 4 & 5 to retest.

At least this way you don't have to use your mobile device to rescan a bunch of stuff just to retest publishing.

Hope that helps.
