Integration Limitations for Egnyte vs. HingePoint

Taking care of your clients means taking care of their data, too. You need a solution that digitizes workflows and enables effortless collaboration while protecting your clients’ data and information. What solution is right for you, and what integration limitations should you consider? Learn more about Egnyte and HingePoint, two file-sync software solutions that you may want to consider.

Egnyte limitations

Egnyte may seem like a great option for some businesses when you view their benefits, but the limitations of Egnyte software are where you’ll want to consider what makes sense.
  • Folder and files with unsupported character types in Egnyte will not be synced between the two systems –this means data input must be accurate and exact on both file servers.
  • Procore projects and Egnyte folders can only be synced to one folder.
  • Subfolders of a Folder that is synced can’t be synced to another Project.
  • 10,000 file limit for syncing per Project.
  • 100 Projects can be synced at one time.
  • Currently, sync between the two platforms happens every hour.
  • Egnyte sync from Procore to Egnyte. It does not sync from Procore to SharePoint.

HingePoint limitations

HingePoint is an ideal option for businesses needing direct folder synchronization between SharePoint and Procore. What limitations does HingePoint offer?
  • HingePoint maps one SharePoint root folder to one Procore documents module, or one SharePoint folder to one Procore documents folder. This can pose challenges if you need to sync one folder in SharePoint to one folder in Procore and another folder to a different location within the same project.
Despite this limitation, HingePoint also provides features addressing some of Egnyte’s limitations:
  • It can handle folders and files with unsupported ASCII characters by removing them and ensuring they sync properly.
  • The service indexes all files in both systems and maintains synchronization without limits. This includes handling extensive syncing jobs of up to 250,000 files, though this may take longer due to throttling issues on Procore, SharePoint, and the HingePoint platform.
  • HingePoint has the file storage space to support syncing as many projects as you purchase connections for, with thousands of connections currently syncing over 4.8 million files as of August 2022.
  • Syncing between the two platforms is performed in real-time, utilizing Webhooks in Procore and Event triggers in SharePoint. When you create, edit, or delete a folder or file, these events trigger HingePoint to mirror the event in real-time, keeping your entire team updated by the second.
