Sidekick - do we have to?

Recommended Posts

Because I manually update my DB weekly, I don't use Sidekick for anything other than having to save to the cloud. In the previous version of CB20/Sidekick, I did use Sidekick for everything because of the stability issues CB was having toward the end of that release and the fact that Sidekick, at that time, had 'better' code than CB? With CB2020, stability is vastly improved and it looks like all the features in Sidekick are available in CB20 and, more importantly, behave exactly the same in both apps. The only feature missing from CB20 is being able to save to the cloud. To do this you have to use Sidekick.

Can this be added to a future release CB?

the 'Save to Cloud' option is featured only in Sidekick mainly because the db file has to be closed; the file needs to be compressed then uploaded to our server without any interruption from user interaction (that could possibly happen in the main CB software). The process can take some time depending on the user's internet upload speed which can vary.
