    The issue is the 20-30 minute wait when multiple people sync at the same time. We discussed a method of syncing every hour which meant that there was a sync at least every 15 minutes staggard, and if done correctly, only resulted in a 5 minute sync time on this particular project. What becomes difficult is not knowing if a sync is completed before it becomes the next person's time to sync.

    A few years ago a large team I worked with resorted to using IM (Skype) to announce “SwC next”, before anyone sync’d they checked the queue...a habit they had to nurture. That’s how they dealt with the stacking up of planes on approach.

    I changed the SWC reminder to 30 minutes yesterday. This morning I saw the SWC reminder finally. So I checked EVERY journal I have (a month's worth) for the text string used in the dialog box, and sure enough it doesn't exist in any journal in the past month except today. Weird.

    That text string isnt even remotely close to what appears in the journal when it reminds you to Sync with Central. Naturally, that search wouldnt turn up any results. Why dont you just post one?

    Steve that's the local save reminder. The SWC looks like this, and Aaron as you'll see, yes it does contain the text "Synchronize with Central". However yesterday when I checked all my past journals I searched for the text string "contains changes". All past journals had no such text, except for yesterday, and now today's journal file.

    Ahh, good call! I must have looked for the Save reminder by accident!

    So something is still going on with this issue. Even though I have SWC reminders set to 30 minutes, I saw zero reminders on Monday, and only one reminder yesterday (Tuesday) at ~4 PM.
