Hi, the current Sync system on the Realms tab is a little vague.

Up to Date is fine, but the Sync option could be phrased better to make it clearer to the user where the sync is from & to, and thus help spot any Sync errors before they happen.

In particular id change Sync to 'Sync From Server' if server version is newer,
or 'Sync To Server' if home realm is newer.

Thus if I know i have the newest version on my PC but the message reads 'Sync From Server', i would know there is about to be a mistake, potentially losing hours of work.

While this shouldnt happen to me, on occasion it has.

I dont foresee this being a major coding problem and would clarify so much for us users.

regards, paul

and maybe its possible to show differences even... In case something has been screwed up. Of course this sounds more like a big addition

Doing a diff between the local and cloud version would involve transferring one DB to the other end and then running a process to find them. I doubt they want to do it on their cloud storage servers so you'd be looking at fair wait while the cloud version is DL'd and then the diffs are found. Based on what I know of the underlying DB program the easiest way would also be the slowest, producing a full export of both and comparing the XML.

I'm not saying this shouldn't be done, and personally think it should be as it would be a major step along the path to allowing multiple people to work on a single realm, just that to do it right might be a lot of work and right now with so many highly desired features still needed I hope they don't do this for a while.

Surely you could just create an index table with changes in a table and just query those to find timestamps and latest changes. So instead of the whole DB just this table is queried and transferred. But I don't know much about repositories..

The issue there is without both realms available you could say, this topic has been added, these snippets have been modified etc. but not show them for the cloud version. If you've forgotten to sync and made significant edits in both versions you'd likely want to take a look at the two versions changes and decide which to keep and which to discard.
