Unable to sync forms

  • Unable to sync forms
  • I'm developing a new site on sitefinity 6.3, and have noticed that I'm unable to sync any forms that I have built. When I navigated to the sync page, it is simply not listed as an option.

    Is there something additional I need to configure? I'm a sitefinity rookie and any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

  • Hi,

    Since the release of Sitefinity 6.3 you have the ability to synchronize Form definitions. Please refer to the following forum thread:

    http://www.sitefinity.com/developer-network/forums/general-discussions-/sitefinity-6-3-released

    However I want to note that the Synchronization module does not synchronize form responses. I have discuss this feature with the team responsible for the Site Sync module and they informed me that it is in our features list for the upcoming releases. There is a feature request logged in our Feedback portal for the ability of synchronization of form responses:

    feedback.telerik.com/.../135025-synchronize-form-responses


    More information for the upgrade procedure could be found in this article.

  • Hi Stefani,

    Thanks for your reply. So does this mean that we are not able to sync forms at all unless we update to 6.3? That would essentially mean that we have no ability to make changes to a form on the public facing site, and I will need to keep the backend available...

  • Hello Lee,

    You are not able to sync forms in versions smaller than Sitefinity 6.3. In order to be able to take advantage of this functionality which was introduced in Sitefinity 6.3 you need to upgrade your Sitefinity 6.1 project to this version or to Sitefinity 7.x.

  • If we are creating a multilingual site, is there a way to make sure the forms are not synced? We want the forms for different languages to be sent to different e-mails if possible. We worked through a vendor, and when I became involved with this project, they were already synced. I wasn't shown where to go to change this fact, or if it was even something that could be done. 

    Thank you.
