Files and folders marked as favorite are synced locally on the iPad. You can access the favorite files and folders anytime, including when you are offline.
The Favorites view shows the list of all files and folders marked as favorite as shown below. The Favorites view is just like the files and folder navigation view with the exception that you can browse through the content very quickly anytime because the content has been synced already on your device. The following is an example of the Syncplicity app’s Favorites view.
The contextual options for the files and folders marked as favorite remain the same as in the Files view. You can also search or filter the files and folders just like you can in the Files view.
You should favorite any file or folder that you access frequently including when you are on the move or offline. However, favoriting a large folder or file can take a lot of time as well as space on the device. During this time, you will see a spinner on the folder or file indicating that it is being favorited. You can continue to do other work in Syncplicity while the favorites process runs in the background.
If you are configured to access SharePoint sites or network shares, you can mark as favorites the files and folders in those accounts. As described in About SharePoint and network share accounts, the folders and files in each account are separate from each other. Favorite folders and files within one account do not appear in the other account’s Favorites.
