BUG: Synced music content doesn't remember track progress

in iOS

I have music synced from a music library which has "Store track progress" enabled. Synced music does not remember track progress. E.g., I pause music. Later I go back to plex, and through usage of other apps plex has been flushed from memory. On reload and playing the track I was playing previously the position is not remembered and the track starts playing from the start.

as of today, latest iOS and Windows Server versions installed.

I've labelled this as a bug as it's unclear when it is by design, or not functioning as intended. As an end user it doesn't work as I expect it to.

    Where is this setting? I have never seen it?

    Edit Library -> Advanced -> Store track progress

    Can confirm this doesn't work, which is a shame as the only reason I bought a plex pass is to sync my audiobooks. Any word on this?

    So if I try to play it from the server instead of the local device it remembers the position. So i have the "Prefer sync content" enabled so in theory it should still be playing my sync file on my local device?

    @sergiou87 Is there any concept of timing for this update? I can understand that the work required to store track progress across iOS and PC and keep them in sync requires additional work, obviously this would be the preferable solution. That being said, to track progress storage for a single device that doesn't need to sync I would expect is fairly simple.

    @sergiou87 Completely understood, I appreciate the follow up. It is the little things like this that don't always show up in release notes or a roadmap that can be crucial for our usage. Is there a roadmap for Plex that helps show some of the priorities and items being worked on by the team?

    Again thank you for your engagement.

    Nope, we don't have a public roadmap (or I'm not aware of it). Since priorities change very quickly for multiple reasons (technical reasons, marketing reasons, hotfixes needed, new features…), having such a roadmap public is another job :D

    Anyway, regarding the bug at hand, we found some (new) technical issues trying to upgrade the PMS inside the app. The server team is working on it, but it seems it will be delayed a bit :(

    Sorry for this bad news!

    @sergiou87 The only bad news is 'no news' to be honest. As long as we get a little nudge that the Team has acknowledged and is working on a fix you'll find most of us fairly happy. If we don't hear anything however that's when we think something is not right. What would be nice to have is a bug/issue list that is maintained by the various developers. So that us users can go and check whether a bug has been acknowledged - even if it means that nobody is working on it for the moment as you have other things to do. Alternatively, Plex should/could have someone in the 'customer relations' team that is aware of which bugs have been passed onto the developers and which ones haven't so he/she can just go in the forums, read the problems and say as much as "Thanks for submitting your bug, the developers have already acknowledged it but are currently unable to fix this problem. Once I have an update on the issue I'll let you know" - true this would be the more expensive option than having a ticket/bug list that we can have look at...

    Yeah I totally agree with you, I'm also a user of other products and feel completely the same about them. For example, it also happens to us that we report bugs to Apple and we never get an answer :D

    So yeah we like to look at the forums from time to time and make sure we answer about everything we know/can (the User Support team does most of the work lately), but it's still really hard to keep up with that and our coding work :'(
