Shareable Concepts


Shareable groups are the group of devices that you want content to be distributed to.

In Shareable its possible to have any number of groups however a device can only be a member of one Group. 

Devices assigned to a group can be moved to another group within the Shareable Administration tool. 

Each Group has a unique Group ID which is system generated using secure 128-Bit UUID. 

Symec Hub user groups can be allocated to the Shareable groups allowing you to configure who can send content to your groups. Please note Symec user Groups and Users are configured by your Symec Administrator. 

Asset ID 

It is no longer possible for non system applications to access privileged data on an android device, so we must add a unique identifier for the device. 

This allows you to identify which devices have downloaded and viewed your messages. 

While the asset ID’s can be anything we would strongly advise you use the Symec Asset ID for the device, so we can  further improve your reporting through EMM integration. 

On-line / Off-line mode 

Shareable will download content to the device, so it can be viewed when the device is not connected to a network, we call this Off-Line Mode.

When the memory allocation for shareable has been used Shareable will delete the media content by last viewed, so content vied frequently will always be on the device,  but the message and the link to view will remain, so the content can still be viewed if needed, we call this On-Line Mode. 

Using this methodology it ensures the latest most used content is available locally on the device irrespective of the device / blend of devices in use. If you require content to be constantly available locally on a device, off-line mode, you will need to ensure you do not exceed the memory available on your devices.
