I agree with Alan. When a refresh request is sent, it takes a few hours before HQ processes the request and sends the refresh back to the unit. So a "refresh" request during the install of 2.8 (if there is one) would not cause a refresh until you do a Send/Receive a few hours after installation. It should not interfere with the record changes.

Allen and Opee

I know a refresh has a reasonably short turn-around (batch processed a few times a day). It has been my experience that a record change (ie phone, address) can be lost during that request to deliver exchange. ( Bro Brown moves to another apartment-- you ask for a refresh with the same connection-- your next connection gives you Bro Brown's OLD info via refresh)

Perhaps the refresh requests I've seen were co-incidence --- or initiated by another user on our MLS system -- but I have seen, by way of connection report printout, that refresh request of geo codes, temple, membership, etc-- have gone out when MLS has had an updating install.

I have learned **NOT** to assume that submitted changes "take", when there is a refresh in the works.
