Spindle Purchase Invoice Recognition's default configuration is to synchronise the end users master data using the Draycir Cloud Synchronisation Agent once a day to Draycir’s cloud server. 


This means if any data is added after the synchronisation will only be available in Spindle Purchase Invoice Recognition the following when the master data synchonisation happens again. 


To ensure the end users master data is kept as up to data as possible a simple Task Scheduler using a BAT file will allow you to Start and Stop the Cloud Sync service at regular intervals to ensure the data is up to date at all times.

(Attached is the BAT file)

Pre-reqs - We will need a dedicated Service account created by the client's IT department in order to successfully run the Task Scheduler service
