Some new fields were added in Salesforce and I'd like to access them in an Exact Target synchronized data extension but they aren't there. Is there a way to refresh the synchronized data extension so these new fields are available? The answer to this alludes me.



Under Contact Builder --> Data Sources --> Syncronized --> Contacts
You'll see a trickle sync icon on the top right .. see the screenshot below - enter image description here

    Actually, this just refreshes the data, not the fields. – Peachy May 22 '16 at 22:02

I figured this out. Go to Contact Builder --> Data Sources --> Synchronized --> Contacts. Find the data extension, click edit fields, find the new field that was added in salesforce, check the box next to it and save.

That worked for me.
