Tap Synced Content to access all your synced content, whether you're online or offline.
Note: Previously synced content was based on your Favorites.

Content that was previously synced because it was favorited is still available in Synced Content. Any files or folders that you favorite from now on will be available in Favorites, but not in Synced Content.

When you’re online, your synced content will automatically sync to your device. This means that this content is always up to date.

If you’re working offline or if you can’t connect to your Alfresco Content Services account, you’ll still be able to see your synced content. If you edit a synced file or folder while you’re offline, the next time you go back online the changes you’ve made will be synced.
