Synchronizing data between the barcode device and Notification Server

Barcode Solution

When you perform the initial synchronization, any data that is specified on the Synchronization Profiles page is uploaded to the barcode device. The initial synchronization may involve the transfer of a significant amount of data. Ensure a good connection (either wireless or through a cradle) with the Notification Server computer.

All subsequent synchronizations only upload or download the changed data or the new data. This process is known as a delta synchronization.

Note that the profiles affect synchronization. If you change the profile that you use, then you must complete a full download again.

This task is a step in the process for setting up the Barcode Solution environment and for performing asset management tasks using Barcode Solution.
