Amplitude supports two types of syncs for computations, properties, cohorts, and recommendations: on-demand and automated. On-demand syncs are ad-hoc, one-time syncs, useful for audience testing and one-off campaigns. Automated syncs are scheduled on a daily or hourly cadence—so as your cohort audience membership changes, or the underlying predicted probabilities of the user change, Amplitude will automatically adjust their cohort membership in connected destinations as well.
No more CSV downloads or manual syncs required—whenever your users take an action in your app, they’ll be automatically synced to your respective ad, email, or testing platform.
Create a new sync
To create a new sync, follow these steps:
- Click + New and click the Sync tile. The Create New Sync modal appears.
- Select the sync type you’d like to create—cohort, recommendation, user property, or computation sync—and click Next.
- From the drop-down list, select the specific item you want to sync. Then click Next.
- Next, choose the destination you’d like to sync to. If the desired destination does not appear, click + Add or Manage Destinations and set up the desired destination there. Then click Next.
- Choose whether this will be a one-time sync, a recurring sync, or a real-time sync. Recurring syncs take place on an hourly or daily schedule, while real-time syncs update each minute.
Depending on your choice in step 4, you may also need to specify a customer account or API target to sync to.
NOTE: In order to use real-time syncs, your account must be enabled for it. Additionally, you can only use real-time syncs with simple event segmentation cohorts with the following clause types: user property, user property latest, event, event count comparison, first time events, nth time event with operator, propensity score, and pathfinder. For more information on real-time syncs, ask your Amplitude Customer Success Manager.
- Click Sync. Your sync is now active.
View sync details
Once your sync has been created, you can view all the sync's critical details by clicking the name of the sync, in the Syncs panel.
The Details tab provides basic information about the sync. The example above is a cohort sync, so the Details tab provides a definition of the cohort, as well as a chart detailing its population over time. The Syncs tab shows each destination that receives this sync.
On the Comparisons tab, you can view a head-to-head comparison between this synced cohort and another cohort of your choosing. You can break down the results of the User Composition chart by user property using the Composition by drop-down.
