Working with a Synced Scenario

When you create a new scenario you can create a detached or synced scenario. The differences between these two types of scenarios are outlined below.

Synchronizing with Platform Data

In a synced scenario, data is regularly pulled from the Verizon Connect platform into Scenarios. To check whether the data is up to date, click Sync in the upper right corner of the screen. On the Sync Scenario with Live Verizon Connect Data menu you can see when the data was last synchronized and whether your scenario is up to date.

If your scenario is not up to date, you can click Update Scenario to pull the data from the Verizon Connect platform immediately.

Publishing to the Platform

If you have a synced scenario, you can publish data from your scenario back to the Verizon Connect platform whenever you choose.

To do this:
 

1.Click Sync in the upper right corner of the screen to open the Sync Scenario with Live Verizon Connect Data menu.

 
2.Select the date range you want to publish.
3.Click Publish.
