How often does Zotero sync group content?

If multiple people are adding items to a group library at the same time, what is the expected sync behavior?

For example, will items added by me:
- Sync immediately after I add them and soon after show up in other active members screen, or
- Sync after a certain period of no activity from me but then show up immediately in other people's Zotero, or
- Wait for inactivity from all members before a sync goes through
  • If you have auto-sync enabled, changes are uploaded 15 seconds after the last change without a further change, or immediately if you click the sync button. If other people have auto-sync enabled, they'll receive the changes within a few seconds of your syncing.

    We'll likely reduce the 15-second timeout in an upcoming version.
