Notes on synchronizing libraries

EndNote allows you to synchronize the references in your EndNote library with the references in your EndNote Online library.

The Sync process automatically synchronizes both sets of references that reside in groups so that an exact match exists in both EndNote and EndNote Online.

The Sync process includes all data changes to references (including file attachments) during the Sync process so that each library matches the other. For example, if you add or remove references and/or PDF files in EndNote, then those changes are updated in EndNote Online and vice-versa.

The Sync process includes updates and additions to groups in both libraries. For example, if you create and add references to a new group in EndNote, then you will see this group in EndNote Online the next time you run the Sync process.
