ScheduleLets you set a schedule for updating your Local Copy datastore: every day at a certain time, or every week on a certain day and time.
IncludeLets you specify the information you’d like to include in your datastore. Note that you can’t change these selections after you have created the job.

  • Number
  • Special character, that is, [~!@#$%^&*()_-++]
Datastore Write Location*Enter the location where you want this project datastore to be saved. Local Copy will create a folder for the datastore with a name based on the job details. To make it easier, copy the path from Windows Explorer and paste it into the space provided.
Admin Notification Email Address*Enter an email address that Local Copy can send notification emails to.
Error Tolerance*Enter the maximum number of errors you want to allow before Local Copy abandons a datastore update. If the number of errors exceeds this value, the datastore is rolled back to the last successful update, and has a status of AvailableWithRollback.
Include WarningsSelect this if you want warnings to be included in the error logs. Warnings are less serious than errors.
Email Preference*Select the administration email notification preference for the datastore. By default, only notifications that require action are sent.
TimezoneLets you choose the timezone for your location. When you change the timezone for a datastore, the displayed time for documents and mails is adjusted to reflect the local time and date for this time zone.
