Glean Mobile - Managing device storage

We know that storage on your mobile device can be limited and you won't need all your Glean data always available on the device.  And that you don't want to be using all your Mobile Data to sync everything to the cloud.

See " Glean Mobile - Cloud Sync - Where are my Events saved" for more details on how your Events are stored.

On mobile Glean gives you some additional options on how to mange your storage, by letting you remove the media associated with each event, from your local storage; this includes the audio part of your event (audio makes up the bulk of your file) as well as any slides or Images. 


Removing the media from your device

If your Event shows just your file duration and no cloud icon, then everything is saved to your device; your audio, text, labels etc

Downloading the media back on to your device

If your Event shows a cloud icon with a down arrow then the media for that Event is in the cloud and not on your device. You can open the Event and read through your text labels without downloading the media.

You can tap the cloud icon to start downloading your media (you have to be connected to the internet).


You when you open the Event you'll have a download Event media button at the bottom of your screen.
