How to: Set Up Synchronization Conflict Resolution Options
Before performing synchronization, you should set up synchronization options. In particular, you should set up how you want synchronization conflicts to be resolved.
There are four ways to resolve synchronization conflicts:
Replace Outlook items with Microsoft Dynamics NAV records.
Replace Microsoft Dynamics NAV items with Outlook records.
Replace older entities with newer ones.
Resolve conflicts manually (default setting).
If you do not change the default option, all conflicts will be logged after synchronization is performed and you will have to solve them manually.
To set up synchronization conflicts resolution options
In Outlook, on the Add-ins tab, on the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Synchronization toolbar, choose the Settings button to open the Settings window.
On the General tab, under Synchronization conflicts resolution, select one of the available options in the following table.
