Captivate Sync™ automatically syncrohonizes your podcast(s) hosted on the Captivate platform to your own, self-hosted WordPress website or to your fully managed WordPress hub, via our Podcast Websites platform, at both timed intervals and when key events happen within your podcast, e.g. a new episode is published. 

At times however, you may wish to check the synchronization status of each podcast linked to your website such as if your local Internet connection fails or industry for your own peace of mind.
