Add a synchronization schedule

You can add a synchronization schedule to automatically synchronize 
BlackBerry UEM
 with your organization's company directory. There are three types of synchronization schedules:
  • Interval: You specify the length of time between each synchronization, the time frame, and the days on which it will occur.
  • Once a day: You specify the time of day that the synchronization starts and the days on which it will occur.
  • No recurrence: You specify the time and day for a one time synchronization.
