Schedule syncs for one or more accounts

Before you can schedule a sync for an account, you'll need to manually sync the account first. You can schedule syncs for active and paused accounts. If an account has been paused and not synced for more than 14 days, you are required to manually sync the paused account before you can schedule a sync of the account.

Note the following about scheduled syncs:

  • The scheduled sync will run daily based on the time you enter, which is based on your browser’s time zone.

  • The schedule should take effect immediately. For example, if it’s currently 9:00 AM and you schedule a sync for 9:30 AM, the first scheduled sync will run on that same day.

  • If you set up a sync schedule, you can still manually sync the account at any time.

  • DS will not sync objects with trafficking errors as a part of a scheduled sync. To clear these errors, you can run a manual sync with the Fix all trafficking errors check box selected.

  • You can turn off the schedule at any time.
