Reset sync criteria to adjust expected sync behavior if a user syncs data in a way that does not meet workflow needs. The Rebuild History feature enables users to reestablish sync settings for both manual and auto sync of calendars, contacts, and tasks.

Warning: The Rebuild History feature does not remove or replace any items that were created, updated, or deleted in Salesforce or Outlook during the last sync. Rebuild History removes the relationships created between the systems so that the sync can be reset with new criteria moving forward.

Example: In this example, we will run the Rebuild History feature on the task sync. The process is the same for using Rebuild History with calendar and contact sync.
