What Are Filters?

Sync filters allow you create a list of file types that you want to be excluded during sync operations.

Defining Filters

Default filter settings can be defined on the User level, but can also be defined per Project Sync Schedule.

Default filters are applied to all Project Sync Schedules but can be removed as needed.

In case of any conflicts between the user’s defaults and a Project Sync Schedule filters, the Project Sync Schedule Filters will take precedence.
