On SharePoint sites page, click the SharePoint site whose content you want to sync, or create a new site following procedure Configure the SharePoint connection.
Choose the method of synchronization by selecting one of the following:
When you select SharePoint content, Sitefinity CMS automatically created the required content types and synchronizes SharePoint content with them. You can synchronize more than one content type at once.
For example, if you want to synchronize a SharePoint calendar, Sitefinity CMS will create a calendar in the Events module and synchronize all SharePoint events with this calendar. If you want to synchronize a list, Sitefinity CMS creates a new dynamic module with the same name and synchronizes all SharePoint list entries with this module.
You can manually map SharePoint content types to Sitefinity CMS content types. You can synchronize only one type at a time.
For example, if you have a SharePoint library, you can manually choose which Sitefinity CMS library to synchronize it with. You can also manually map all SharePoint fields of a content type to the fields of the chosen Sitefinity CMS type.
For example, if you have chosen to synchronize a SharePoint calendar, a list of all created Sitefinity CMS calendars appears, together with the option to create a new calendar.
IMPORTANT: When mapping a SharePoint type to a Sitefinity CMS dynamic type, have in mind that, if the SharePoint type is named Title, it will automatically become the identifier field of the dynamic type.
For example, if the identifier of the dynamic type is Author and, if you map a SharePoint field named Title to a Sitefinity CMS field named Name, the identifier of the dynamic type will be changed from Author to Name.
For example, if you are synching a SharePoint calendar with a Sitefinity CMS calendar and you have two data sources configured for the Events module, they both appear in the Provider dropdown box.
For more information about data sources, see Multisite: Manage multiple sites.
To connect a new list form the same SharePoint site, click Connect a list button in the toolbar and perform the above procedure again.
