SyncFields

Описание

What does it do?

With this plugin you can map and synchronize fields in the WordPress user and usermeta database.

Note:
This plugin syncs one way only!

The plugin adds a new menu in the backend called ‘SyncFields’, which allows you to control the plugin settings.

Give me an example please

When you install plugins such as WooCommerce, the WordPress usermeta database table is populated with new fields. You can map these fields and choose to automatically sync these with other usermeta fields, or with the WordPress regular user fields.
For example, you can choose to Sync WooCommerce billing_country usermeta field with the WordPress main Country user field. And lot’s of other ways to sync data within WordPress, and keep it synced automatically.

Does it work with plugin xyz…?

Yes, it works with ANY plugin which creates usermeta fields. The plugin automatically finds new fields every time you install a new plugin.

To create a new Sync between two database fields:

  • Click on ‘Add new mapping’. A list of available fields are collected. (This can take some time).
  • Choose the Primary Field.
  • Choose a field the primary field will sync with.
  • Click on ‘Create New Field’

Once you created a mapping between two fields, the data will remain synced for all users. (The way it works is that every time data is changed in a field the sync will trigger automatically).

To delete a field mapping:

  • Click the ‘delete’ button in the applicable mapping row.

To edit a field mapping:

  • Click the ‘edit’ button in the applicable mapping row.

Внимание:

Make sure database fields which you intend to sync are of the same type. So for example do not sync an email field with a Country field, this will result in invalid data in the synced fields.
If in doubt do NOT sync fields with each other, it may break your site in extreme cases.

Часто задаваемые вопросы

I’m missing usermeta fields

So you activated a new plugin, and expected new usermeta fields to appear in SyncFields. But they didn’t.

Why does this happen:
Most usermeta fields only get created in the WordPress database once they are needed for the first time. This typically is when a user first populates a field, and not once a plugin gets activated!

What can you do about it:
If you miss a specific usermeta field, create a test customer and use the field you want to appear.
For example: to make WooCommerce billing_country usermeta field appear, create a testcustomer and purchase a test product whilst populating the checkout fields including the billing country for the test customer. At that moment new usermeta fields for WooCommerce are created for the first time in the WordPress database (Tip: use the ‘Cash on Delivery’ payment method so you don’t have to set up any real payment methods yet to place the test order). After this, these usermeta fields are created, and therefore available to SyncFields.

Does this plugin work with Headless /JamStack WordPress sites?

Yes it works.

What is Cron Scheduling?

If you want to run a regular Sync on a Cron schedule, please use this option.
It normally should not be necessary because syncs are saved upon every commit.

Where can I find the documentation

The plugin is documented in the backend. If you have any questions, feel free to pose them in the Support section here https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/syncfields

WooCommerce and other plugins come with lots of user meta fields. With this plugin it’s easy to automatically keep them synced. So no need to edit e.g. the customers first name in 6 different input fields (shipping, billing, user, crm, …). Three feature requests: - Two-Way Sync - change the dropdown to a searchable dropdown (my dropdown is > 400 field options) - ability to add custom fields that are not shown in the list.

A real time saver! I can now map my users that were registered by a Formidable form into my Woocommerce shop. Thank you!

Thank you for taking the time to create this plugin! It perfectly solves an annoying issue especially common in WooCommerce sites with syncing user meta fields. The cron is an even nicer touch. By automating this process, our team is able to avoid so many support requests in regard to profile updates. Well done! 🙂 -- LittleBizzy
