Sync your EndNote Desktop and Online libraries

After you create an EndNote Online account you can easily sync it to your Desktop library so that you have the convenience of accessing EndNote from anywhere and of having the same library of references. The sync process can only be initiated from the EndNote Desktop (EndNote 20 for Windows / for Mac or EndNote X9 for Windows / for Mac). References from both libraries will be copied to the other library.

After the initial sync, any changes you make to either library will be synchronized in both libraries. For example, if you delete references from your Desktop library they will also be deleted from your online library.

Note: Customized groups and file attachments can sync to EndNote Online but smart groups, combination groups and group sets cannot.
