Configure app settings on iPhone

You can manage various Syncplicity app settings on your iPhone.

From the Insights screen, you can click the dot to the left or swipe right to go back to the main menu. Tap the dot there to see an account screen, which shows Syncplicity and feature planned for a future release. In the Accounts screen, tap the settings icon to the left to view the Syncplicity app settings.


Some options have toggle buttons that show if they are enabled or disabled:

The settings are described in the following sections:


The Offline section has the following items:

  • Synchronize Offline: By default, Offline content is synchronized; however, you can choose to disable synchronization.
  • Sync On: You can choose Wi-Fi and Cellular, or Wi-Fi Only. This can be enforced by IT policy.
  • Power Level: Allows you to choose when to disable sync so as not to drain the battery life. By default, it is set at 20% or more. However, the content in Offline is always synchronized when the device is powered on regardless of this setting.
  • Data Transfer Limit: By default, there is no data transfer limit; however, this can be set by IT and applies only to data over a cellular network.
  • Event Notifications: By default, you are notified when items in your Favorites have changed. You can turn this setting off.
  • Usage: Displays total and cellular bandwidth utilization for the billing period.

You can disable the advanced security options for shared links. Should you disable the advanced options, you are not prompted to require recipients to log in or enter a password when you create a shared link.

By default, the shared links options are enabled. If the security options are enforced by IT policy then you do not have the ability to disable shared link options.

This setting is not available for Personal Edition users.


File Cache stores all the files you opened and downloaded. If you wish to remove the Syncplicity files stored on your device, tap Clear File Cache. You are prompted to clear the cache.


For extra security and safety, you can enable a passcode that you must enter when accessing the Syncplicity app. Tap Enable Passcode and enter a passcode. When you enter an incorrect passcode that exceeds the number of times that IT specifies, then the Syncplicity mobile clients automatically wipe the device and clear all user data.

By default, you are not required to enter a mobile passcode; however, your IT can enforce the use of a passcode on Syncplicity mobile clients. In which case, you must set a passcode.


When Background refresh is enabled, the background photos are automatically refreshed and changed periodically. If disabled, the background photo does not change.

Motion Sensor

When Tilt Control is on, you can swipe between images just by tilting the device left and right.  However, when Tilt Control is on, landscape mode for viewing images is turned off.

Tilt Control is off by default.

Microsoft Office → Open Office Files in Microsoft Apps: Enable to use Microsoft Office apps on your device for viewing and editing documents. Requires a subscription to Microsoft Office 365; without subscription, permission is view only. Disable to use the Syncplicity native editor for viewing and editing documents.

  • Contact Support: You can contact Support for any issue that you are facing with the app.
