How do I view the sync history for a blueprint course as an admin?

Once a sync has been made in a blueprint course to associated courses, the sync is recorded in the Sync History page. You can view Sync History to view prior syncs and details about the sync.

Any instructor who is enrolled in the blueprint course can also make changes and sync content to associated courses. Synced changes from the instructor also display in the Sync History page.

The Sync History page records the last five syncs to the blueprint course.


  • If sync history shows no sync details, the blueprint course was being synced to an associated course. The sync history for association syncs show the date and time the sync was made but no additional details are included.
  • Instructors in associated courses can view the latest blueprint sync information in Course Settings.

View Sync History

The Sync History page shows information about the last five syncs to the blueprint course. The page displays the date and time of the sync [1], the number of changes [2], and the name of the user who synced the changes [3].

If a message was included as part of the notification, the message is displayed above the list of synced changes [4].

For an initial course association, sync history displays the date and time the sync was made but does not display details related to the sync.

View Sync Details

The Sync History page shows the specific content that has been synced. Each content object shows the synced status of the object (locked or unlocked) [1], the name of the content item [2], the content object type [3], the content change [4], and whether or not the sync was applied [5].

Content changes can be created, updated, or deleted. Updated changes indicate any change to existing content.

View Sync Exceptions

The Sync History page may show items with a sync exception. Exceptions occur when content is not synced because the content was modified in an associated course before the blueprint course was synced.

An exception is noted by the Exception indicator [1], which includes the number of exceptions.

To view which course(s) had an exception, click the arrow icon next to the name of the content item [2]. The term and name of the course is shown in the expanded details.
