Finding reuse and synchronization

With reuse and synchronization, you can duplicate supporting information for any item, container of items, or even a project and continuously keep it in sync.

  • Organization administrator — Only an organization administrator can configure reuse and synchronize.

  • Explorer Tree — In the Explorer Tree, a blue dot in the bottom right-hand corner indicates that an item was synchronized.

  • List View — Select an item in list view then select Actions > Reuse to open the Reuse item(s) window.

  • Project drop-down menu — An organization or project administrator can select Project > Sync items to open the Sync items window, or Project >Manage all projects to duplicate (and optionally synchronize) projects

  • Stream — Reuse and synchronization of items adds activity entries to the stream for all items created or modified during the process.

  • Synced items window — Right-click on any item in the Explorer Tree, then select View synched items.

    This opens the Sync Items window, where you can select any item or container on the left to see which other items have the same global ID.

  • Single Item View synced items bottom panel — Open an item in Single Item View. On the right toolbar select, select Synchronized items.

    This opens the bottom panel to display all items that are currently synchronized with this item. From here, you can connect items, synchronize items, break sync, or compare details for items that are out of sync.
