Manage Multiple ChronoSync Documents

If you have multiple ChronoSync documents and need to run your syncs or backups manually, you may find it taxing to open each ChronoSync document and execute it manually. There are two easy methods to simplify managing multiple ChronoSync documents.

  • You can add the ChronoSync documents to a Container document. A Container holds multiple ChronoSync documents and enables you to control several ChronoSync documents as if they were one document.
  • You can make use of the Scheduled Documents Manager window to collect and organize commonly used ChronoSync documents without scheduling them.

Both methods allow you to schedule or manually run your syncs and backups.

What kind of software development environment and process leads companies to number releases with numbers like 8.0.18314? If they simply restricted their releases to once per day and numbers to year-month-day, as in 20121105, almost anyone could determine how recent a given release was(is).

Maybe it's the number of minutes since the last stable build. :-)
