If selecting.... Then... Server wins (replace item on client) In the event of a conflict, the server takes precedence i.e.
server’s record replaces client’s record.
Client wins (replace item on server) In the event of a conflict, the client takes precedence i.e. client’s record replaces server’s record. Merge data (merge item on server and client) If there is conflict between two fields, the client takes precedence, i.e. the client’s record replaces the server’s record. However, if both client and server store the last modification date, the most recent record takes precedence. Duplicate data (keep a copy of both items) In the event of conflict the records are duplicated. This means the client record is added on the server and the server record is added on the client. This conflict rule is not recommended because it could result in multiple duplications in multi-message mode. Let server choose conflict rule (default rule) The server chooses which conflict rule to apply. This choice is checked by default.
