I suggest you ...

Add the same "Synchronize All" functionality to the command line tool that exists in the GUI tool.

Add a switch to the command line tool that gives the same functionality as the GUI tool's "Synchronize All" function. Additionally, give [both] the ability to synchronize all views at the same time.

This would allow easier scripting of "backups" to a central server.

        We never started this one so far.

        At the end of the day we always end up using CmdRunner and a couple of commands to get this one solved, although doing it from the CLI makes sense.

        We'll do our best to push it forward.

        We have started to use writable xlinks in most projects. To replicate a project we create sync views that contains targets for all xlinked projects.
        However, I cannot find a way to synchronize a whole view. I have to refresh each target, right click and synchronize, wait until synchronizing finish, repeat for all targets.

        Preferably syncing multiple repositories would be a one-click affair, but the current procedure is tedious and easily error prone.

        The common scenario for me is this: I make a few changes on my laptop while commuting. At work I sync the laptop with the main repository and repeat the sync when leaving the office. It would be nice for me with a single button sync. Optimally there would be both a button for syncing all repositories in a view and a button for syncing all views.
