04. Open existing and create new Synctool profiles


When opening the Synctool you have an overview of all current Synctool profiles.

Synctool profiles are .xml files that contain the Synctool configuration. The files contain for example which sources to use, the enabled synchronization options and how to send out email reports after synchronizing.

Automatic detection of profiles

If you open the Synctool and you have Synctool profiles (.xml files) in %AppData%/Zivver/Synctool for the account that is currently logged in to the server, then the Synctool will automatically detect and import them.

You can check if you have Synctool profiles stored by opening Windows File Explorer and copy-paste %AppData%/Zivver/Synctool in your address bar.

Loading profiles manually

If you have Synctool configuration profiles (.xml files) stored at a different location than %AppData%/Zivver/Synctool, then you can load the profiles from any location on the server.

Click Load settings profile and browse to the location where the Synctool profile is stored.

Browse to the service account AppData
You may find Synctool profiles in the AppData of a service account that is used to run the Synctool on a daily basis via the Windows Task Scheduler. Go to C:\Users\"service-account-name"\AppData\Roaming\Zivver\Synctool to check if there are Synctool profiles stored.

Creating new profiles

If you do not have existing Synctool profiles to work with because for example your organization is new to Zivver, then you can create a new Synctool profile by clicking add Create new settings profile.

Store the profile near the Synctool
For example, if you have installed the Synctool at C:\Program Files\Zivver\Synctool then create a subfolder C:\Program Files\Zivver\Synctool\Configuration and store the newly created Synctool profile in the Configuration folder.
