VSys Web Advanced Synchronization

The synchronization process moves data from your local VSys database (options, news, and application layouts) to the web database, and downloads completed applications and hours from the web database to your local database. You'll probably run this process once per day to get the completed applications downloaded. Doing it more often will not cause any problems. From the VSys Web panel select Synchronize with the VSys Web Advanced database.



Values such as jobs, locations, news and other options set are pushed to the web database.

Application layouts

New and changed application form layouts are pushed up to VSys Web.

Volunteer hours and assignments

Hours and assignments for all volunteers who have web user IDs. These are read-only to the volunteers online and only for their reference.


Newly-created and updated user IDs will be pushed up to VSys Web Advanced to allow these individuals to sign in.


Completed applications

Applications which volunteers have filled out online (and where the activation e-mail link has been clicked, if required) are downloaded to the local database for processing.

Volunteer-entered hours

If you allow your volunteers to enter hours online, this downloads them into VSys for approval and posting.

After selecting the values to be synchronized, click the Run button. VSys will connect to the web database and move the appropriate data back and forth to keep the databases up-to-date.

You can also use a Scheduled Task to run this process on an automated basis.
