    Hello Stephen

    Goalscape Desktop and Goalscape Online are separate yet compatible products.

    In Goalscape Online you can upload Desktop projects (.gsp files) to work on them online (and share them with others); you can also download your Online projects as .gsp files and work on them in Goalscape Desktop when offline. See the attached screenshot.

    There is no automatic 'sync' between the two: if you download an Online project, update it using Desktop and re-upload it to Online, that will create a new instance of the online project. So if you do this you will need to do your own version control (tip: add a datestamp to the main goal name in Goalscape Online and to the .gsp filename).

    Note too that if you do this on a shared Online project, one of your collaborators may have updated the online version while you were away, so the online version should always be the 'master' (you can C&P specific goals that you have updated back into the master).

    The free Goalscape Mobile app (for all Android and iOS phones and tablets) is a companion app for Goalscape Online: it does sync automatically to deliver daily goals and tasks in an indented text hierarchy (like the Goal List in the main applications).

    The Goalscape Mobile client relies on HTML5, Javascript and Google Polymer, and uses the latest technologies like Web Components (http://webcomponents.org/). This code base will be developed further into a fully functional webapp that will work on any platform to access both local and remote projects and sync automatically.

    Enjoy the journey!
