One-Way Exchange Folders Synchronization
CodeTwo Exchange Sync will let you sync data between folders of Exchange server in a number of ways. There are two synchronization types.
Below you will find information on one-way syncing between folders on Exchange server. If you want to learn about two-way synchronization, go to this page.
One-way synchronization can occur between a set of folders (two or more) but the data will always go in one direction only. This means there are source folders and target folders. The changes made to the source folder are propagated (synchronized) to the target folders, but the changes that occur in the target folders are not synchronized back at all.
The one-way synchronization can be of the following type:
One to one
Exactly two folders are synchronized one of which becomes the source folder and the other is target. Therefore, the changes to the source folder are mirrored in the target folder, but the changes occurring to the target folder are not mirrored in the source folder. More...
One to many
There is one source folder only and multiple target folders. The changes in the source folder will propagate to all target folders. In this type, the data from the source folder is replicated in the multiple target folders.
This synchronization type will, for example, be used in companies where there is one continually updated contacts database located in a public folder and the requirement is for the contacts to sync to the personal folders of selected employees. This will allow the employees to have public contacts in their personal contacts folder alongside the personal contacts for the data they input will not synchronize with the public folder as it would if two-way synchronization were used. Because now the personal contacts folders of employees are always up-to-date, they can upload the data to mobile devices. More...
Many to one
There are multiple source folders and one target folder. Each change made to any source folder will propagate to the single target folder. In other words, the data from multiple folders is gathered in one folder.
This synchronization type will be frequently used with calendar folders e.g. when we want to create a single calendar that will show an aggregate view of multiple calendars. It enables quick setup of a public calendar that will contain appointments and meetings of several employees. What is more, by employing the modifiers, appointments of different employees can be tagged with separate color categories while the filters will ensure that items marked by staff members as private will not sync to the public aggregate calendar.
