slow to show newly shared folders

Some times it takes a really long time for newly shared folders to show up in the web UI. Is there (aside from restarting) a way to “force” an update, to bump Syncthing to make it notice the new folder? Can I in the receiver click “add a new folder” and enter the same folder id as the sharer?

Yes, you can add the folder (same ID) on the other device manually and share it with the first device. Then they should start syncing immediately.

alright, thanks! I was a bit afraid to test in case it wasn’t intended to work that way :slight_smile:
