Managing multiple accounts across different platforms simultaneously can be a challenge for numerous businesses that depend on utilizing a variety of accounts for their daily operations. The constant toggling between windows, manual copying and pasting of information, and efforts to synchronize operations can be not only time-consuming but also prone to errors. To mitigate these challenges, AdsPower offers a Synchronizer feature.

Synchronizer is a unique tool designed to streamline the management of multiple accounts and synchronize actions across all active profiles in AdsPower. In other words, this tool enables users to replicate actions performed in one profile to others simultaneously, resulting in significant time savings.

This article aims to explain how to use the Synchronizer tool correctly and offer solutions to common problems users may face. Let's get started!

Common Issues and Troubleshooting Steps

1. Why when starting sync, it keeps showing “Operation failed: Config initialization failed. Please click the Refresh button or update your AdsPower version”?

(1) Please make sure that your program version and patch version are up to date. If not, update to the latest version and then try restarting AdsPower.

(2) It might be due to the firewall or antivirus software. Turn them off temporarily and try again. If that doesn't work, try restarting your computer.

(3) Check if there are any proxy tools on your computer, as they may be impacting the network connection. Turn off any proxy tools and try again.


2. Why navigation bar operations cannot sync during Synchronizer?

(1) Please ensure that the navigation bar layout is consistent throughout all windows, including button positioning and the bookmark column. It is important to have a uniform interface before proceeding with synchronization.

(2) Moreover, make sure the browser kernel version used on all windows is the same. If there are any differences, replace the kernel with a unified kernel version.


3. During Synchronizer, all the window size is set to the same, why extension pinned can show on one page, but another can not show the same?

The issue is that the profile name on his profile is of different lengths, which causes longer names to hide the icon. We recommend using the profile number as the profile icon to ensure that each profile URL is the same length.


4. When using the “Overlap” layout, why the mouse scroll operation cannot sync?

This issue is an inherent limitation of the Windows system, as it requires a scrolling operation to be visible. Unfortunately, this means that synchronization is not possible for sections that are covered.

To address this issue, we recommend using a “Grid” layout for the page to ensure smooth scrolling synchronization.

If you prefer to continue using an “Overlapping” layout, it is important to control pages from overlapping too much so that some space is left exposed. This will allow for successful scrolling within the overlapping sections.


5. When customizing window layout, why do windows overlap when trying to arrange them in a grid layout?

Please check your window size settings to ensure they are at least 500*100. If they are below the minimum, windows may overlap.

6. Why are the buttons in the Synchronizer section not working?

Please ensure that the Synchronizer is enabled, as the functionality of the button relies on the activation of the Synchronizer.

Moreover, the Tabs Management feature is only available for Chrome kernel 111 or above.


7. How to deal with conflicts between Synchronizer hotkeys and other computer hotkeys?

Simply click on the settings button located in the top right corner, then you can customize different hotkeys to avoid conflicts with system or other software hotkeys.

(1) Open all the profiles you need on the "Profiles" page.

10. How many windows the synchronizer will accommodate?

The number of profiles you can synchronize at once depends on how many profiles you can open and operate at the same time according to your device configuration. Also, if you open lots of small windows, it might be harder to sync them all efficiently. For example, trying to sync 100 profiles at once might be difficult because the windows are too small to work with.
