You asked for it – changes made to your passwords via Passpack Desktop, can be uploaded to your Passpack.com account. Want to test the release candidate? It’s official.
Local vs. Sync-able Entries
In the entry window in Passpack Desktop, tick Set as local entry only if you’d like the Synchronization procedure to completely ignore the entry. That means it will never be available on your Passpack.com account… unless of course you decide to untick that option in the future. [smile]
Whenever you create a new non-local entry, or make changes one, that entry will be clearly marked with a TO SYNC label in your list. Go to Tools > Sync with Passpack.com to synchronize all changes.
What Syncs and What Doesn’t
Any changes made online can sync down to our Passpack Desktop account. Generally, the entry data can be synchronized from Passpack Desktop “up” to Passpack.com. However not all, all, all changes made in Passpack Desktop will sync back to Passpack.com.
Here are the three exceptions for Desktop -> Online sync:
- Whether or not the entry is a favorite
This is pretty useful since you usually have a totally different set favorites on the desktop as opposed to online. With the upcoming mobile version release, we’re making some changes to how favorites work, so we’re leaving these untouched for the time being.
If you have set up your favorites separately on the two platforms, you might also want to deselect the favorites checkbox under Tools > Sync with Passpack.com to keep them from being overwritten during a synchronization.
- The entry tags
Passpack entries, and Passpack tags use two completely different databases – so this is a technical limitation, at least for the foreseeable future. Again, if you have set up your tags separately on the two platforms, deselect the tags checkbox under Tools > Sync with Passpack.com.
- Deleted entries
This is mostly a precaution. If you want to permanently delete entries from your Passpack.com account, you must do that from your online account. Got it? Ok, let me restate that… if you delete an entry from Passpack Desktop – but not from Passpack.com – the synchronization process will plop it right back into your Desktop account.
