🚀 Default Field Mapping

1) WHAT IS DEFAULT FIELD MAPPING?

Two fields that are kept in sync by PieSync, without explicitly requiring the user to choose them. These are built-in mappings between standard fields that exist in both applications you are keeping in sync, usually fields such as name, phone or email address.

This new default field mapping visualization shows the fields we have always been syncing. 

In some connections, list fields are included in the default field mappings. We always sync the first value in the list field you have set up in the application. Unless we sync two list apps, in that case, we sync all values. 

Fields that are used in the built-in mappings (default field mapping), cannot be used in the custom mappings.

2) WHY IS MY CONNECTION NOT SHOWING THE DEFAULT FIELD MAPPING? 

We are in the middle of migrating all our connector apps to our new engine and the first wave of this roll-out has been finalized. If you can’t see the default field mapping, it means our engineering team is working hard to get the second wave out to you. It won’t take much longer for it to show in your connection too! The default field mapping is happening in the background, this update just made it visible. So if you’re unsure which fields we are syncing, just drop us a line at support@piesync.com and we’ll let you know asap!

We don’t just sync what is shown in the default field mapping, you can also set up custom mappings with our new feature: Customizable Field Mapping! Read our blog post about it here.
