Anyone know if its possible to force SF for Outlook to sync immediately after a user has selected the "Sync with Salesforce" category for an Event, rather than wait the standard 10 mins for the sync to kick in?

Alternatively, is there a way to add a button to Outlook that replicates the effect of the Sync Now menu option in the SF for Outlook task bar (so its more visible to users)?

Right click on Salesforce for Outlook icon from your system tray and select Sync -> Sync Now

  • I wasn't clear - I'm looking to replicate that within outlook rather than in the system tray e.g. like the create case button

  • Unfortunately we don't have anything like that built in. You can post an idea in ideaexchange Jun 3, 2015 at 9:24
