Block table rows from downloading

I am running ODK-X with ODK Aggregate 1.4.15.

One of my tables has grown so huge and causing a lot of delays when the data collectors are syncing.

I am wondering if there is a way to stop the downloading of some data rows. I know I can download the data and keep it somewhere then start the table afresh but I am just wondering if there is a better way to keep the data on the server but avoid any download of such data rows.

The default behavior is to sync all rows. There is, however, discussion of adding options to change that behavior in the future: https://github.com/odk-x/tool-suite-X/issues/95 so if that is something that would help you, please weigh in on the issue on github.

What we did in the field to address this was to use Suitcase to manage the data; we downloaded cases where all work was complete and then deleted them from the server. Not sure if that is an option in your case.

Thanks for the response. I will have to use the download option for now.
I will also weigh in on the discussion.
