I have a doc that multiple managers are working out of to manage our company contacts and projects. The doc has grown too large to use optimally so I have split everything into master docs and then created department docs that only sync portions of docs. For instance, I have a master contacts and projects doc that includes all projects, but I have an electrical department doc that only syncs electrical projects from that master doc.
The issue I am facing with the cross-doc is the delay when syncing multiple cross docs. In the example project, I have a synced cross doc for contacts and projects. In order to request a project, a manager has to select the contact. However, if it is a new contact, it is now takes a few more steps for the manager to get that contact. When they were working out of the master doc, they could just add the new contact and it would immediately show up in the dropdown. Now if they add it, it will take up to 1 hour to become available, or they will have to manually force sync the table. I’m looking for a workaround that can make this process a little smoother for them. Any ideas?
