One-way Exchange folders synchronization
CodeTwo Exchange Sync lets 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.
The one-way synchronization can be of the following type:
One to one
In this synchronization type, only two folders are in sync - one becomes the source folder and the other is the target. Therefore, the changes to the source folder are mirrored in the target folder, but the changes occurring in the target folder are not synced to 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 to multiple target folders.
This synchronization type will be used, for example, 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 alongside with their personal contacts folder. The data they input in their personal folders will not synchronize to the public folders (for that you would need the two-way synchronization type). 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, fore example, when you want to create a single calendar that will show an aggregated 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 conditions will ensure that items marked by staff members as private will not sync to the public aggregated calendar.
