Imagine — you work on your data in your desktop GIS, and magically, your web maps just.. update. Why work harder when you can work smarter?

Data Sync lets you do complex work on datasets in your desktop GIS or spreadsheet application, and have changes updated on your webmaps, without even logging into Mango.

To configure Data Sync:

  1. Open the dataset you want to sync
  2. Click on DATA SYNC on your administration sidebar
  3. Click on the Dropbox icon and authorize Mango to access your files
  4. Select all files that make up the dataset and Save

Mango listens to Dropbox for changes to your dataset, and automatically pulls the updated files, processes the changes, and hey presto all maps using that dataset will be updated.

You can monitor the status of each synced dataset by opening the Data Sync panel from your Data portal.

Sync Errors

Mango cannot process syncs where the new version contains columns that have been renamed, or columns that have been removed.

Before attempting to re-sync, please manually re-upload your dataset and ensure your dataset contains all original columns.

Updated versions of your dataset can contain additional columns that were not in the existing version in Mango.

Data Sync may not be fully supported on older versions of these browsers, or on browsers not listed above. If you experience issues authenticating Dropbox with Mango Data Sync, please ensure you are using a supported browser.
