Configuring the APS Sync Settings

Within FYI you can manage your synchronisation settings for APS to suit your business requirements.

Field Sync Options

The Practice Sync options give you the ability to control which fields are synchronised. 

To disable an option, click the toggle to switch the option off. Any previously synchronised data will be removed during the next sync.


Change Synchronisation Frequency

By default, the synchronisation frequency is set to 15 minutes. This can be adjusted by clicking the drop-down and selecting one of the options up to 120 minutes (2 hours). 

Flush Cache

Click the "Flush Cache" button to ensure the cache is flushed during the next synchronisation. A message will briefly display to confirm your request, and the "Flush Cache" button will be inactive until the cache flush has been completed.


View Synchronisation History

The Practice Sync APS settings in FYI display the date the app was connected and the date of the last synchronisation.


Updates will be added to the Practice Activity log when sync options are toggled on/off, an error is recorded, or when a sync has been completed e.g. Clients: 34 Synced. Refer to the Practice Activity article for more information.

Click the line in Practice Activity to view detailed information in the drawer.


To receive a notification when there has been an update with a status of "Action Required" or "Failure", FYI offers a Practice Activity Alert custom automation process. Refer to Practice Activity Alert for step-by-step instructions.
