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.

TidBITS, begun in 1990, is an online newsletter and Web site, devoted to the person behind the most personal of personal computers, the Macintosh. TidBITS relates events and products to real life uses and concerns. New TidBITS issues go out every Monday night; articles appear on the Web site throughout the week.

Privacy - TidBITS Electronic Publishing takes online privacy very seriously. We actively protect the privacy of users of TidBITS Web sites and people who subscribe to TidBITS publications and mailing lists.

RSS Syndication - Since October of 2001 we've published an RSS file for TidBITS (click the RSS icon in the address bar in Safari or Firefox). Note that TidBITS members receive a full-text feed; for everyone else, the RSS feed contains article abstracts and links to our Web site.

Story - Adam and Tonya Engst founded TidBITS in April of 1990, and it has been published weekly ever since, which makes it one of the longest-running Internet publications. We've done a lot of things since, including starting the first Internet advertising program in 1992, creating (with Northwest Nexus) the first flat-rate graphical Internet account in 1993, and much more. Read our annual anniversary articles for a sense of what we've done in that time.

Translations - TidBITS is translated into Dutch and Japanese each week by dedicated groups of volunteer translators (if you'd like to help out, let Adam know!).
