Manual synchronization

After setting SimpleSYN up and establishing a connection between SimpleSYN-client and SimpleSYN-server it is possible to manually synchronize individual Outlook® items or complete Outlook® folders at any time via the additional SimpleSYN Outlook® Add-in. The Outlook® folders do not have to be selected for automatic synchronization.

Use the manual synchronization if a single Outlook® item is to be synchronized or the Outlook® item is in a folder that is not automatically synchronized.

Information about automatic synchronization can be found here.

Use the SimpleSYN toolbar that is automatically being loaded at the start of Outlook® for manual synchronization.

SimpleSYN has to be started for manual synchronization.

Synchronize Items

Click on “Synchronize Items” to add all currently in Outlook® selected items to synchronization. SimpleSYN uses the target folders specified under “Synchronization Settings”. SimpleSYN will try to synchronize the items into a target folder with equal name and path as the source folder in case of the current source folder is not being selected for automatic synchronization.

If the current folder is not being synchronized automatically and no folder with the same path is available on the target computer or a folder with the same path cannot be created, the synchronization will fail.

 

Synchronize Folder

To synchronize the currently in Outlook® shown folder click on “Synchronize Folder”. SimpleSYN synchronizes the whole currently selected folder. SimpleSYN uses the target folder and options specified under “Synchronization Settings”. SimpleSYN will try to synchronize the items into a target folder with equal name and path as the source folder in case of the current source folder is not being selected for automatic synchronization. Synchronization will happen in both directions in this case.

If the current folder is not being synchronized automatically and no folder with the same path is available on the target computer or a folder with the same path cannot be created, the synchronization will fail.
