User Synchronization

Uploading Member Information


Most WebCommunicator customers update their web site member database from files generated from their back office system.  Buz provides assistance and tools to facilitate the uploads.

Member Profile Updates

Most customers encourage their members to update their personal profiles online.  Self administered member information changes are emailed to the customer.  It is the responsibility of the customer to update their back office systems.  Unfortunately due to timing issues the web site and back office systems are seldom in synch.

Synchronization Tools

WebCommunicator offers synchronization tools to bring both databases into synch. These should be used as required, if you are confident that your back office system is up to date.


Three Synchronization Options

There are three synchronization options:

  • QuikSynch Email will as the label suggests update the web site database with email addresses in the database uploaded from the club.  This feature is available to ensure that the email addresses in the club database, including blanks, overwrite all email addresses in the online database.
  • Remove Deleted Users will permanently remove all users from the online database who do not appear in the uploaded database.  Users entered manually online, will not be affected.  This feature should be used with great care and you should consider consulting Buz technical support before conducting the removal.
  • Full Synchronization will update the online database with fields checked off in the complete list of fields.  Blank email addresses will not overwrite email addresses in the online database. 

Please understand all synchronization options and use appropriate caution.
