Manual sync translations


(Heidi Kasemir) #1

Looking at documentation for adding a new project, something indicates that you can press a button that says “sync”. I’ve got a local instance up and running, but I don’t see any way to sync a new project. What I have been doing is following the command line operations in the startup docs, which works, but I’d like to know if there is a way to force a sync in the ui.

Also, once an instance of pontoon is deployed - does it automatically sync every hour or something? or do you need to set up a cron job separately to run?

For the first you need MANUAL_SYNC

For the second, I think you need a cronjob
