To apply a filter to items that come from SharePoint to Sitefinity CMS, perform the following:
For example, if you have set a SharePoint filter Country == Canada, all items in SharePoint that have their Country equal to Canada are synchronized in Sitefinity CMS. However, if you create an item in Sitefinity CMS and leave its country field empty, this item will be automatically assigned the default value Canada. This way, when the item is synced from Sitefinity CMS to SharePoint, it will be again synced back to Sitefinity CMS. If the item is not assigned a default value and its country field remains empty, it will be synched to SharePoint with empty Country field and when it is modified in SharePoint, it cannot be synced back to Sitefinity CMS, because it does not meet the filter conditions – Country == Canada.
