Yellow Dog synchronizes item and sales data with Arryved Venyu via two elements:
- Yellow Dog's sync application, which pulls Arryved Venyu's Inventory Level codes from, and pushes new and changed items to Arryved Venyu's API. Yellow Dog's sync can be run at any interval, but will be scheduled at the top of each hour during business hours by default.
- Arryved Venyu's sync application, which pushes sales data to the Yellow Dog API; the frequency of these updates are determined by Arryved Venyu, but is generally on an hourly basis.

- A list of all Location IDs (Revenue Center Codes)
- A list of all items currently in Arryved Venyu with their corresponding ItemIDs, Unit-Size codes, and Item_Types.

Importing Sales Data
The Yellow Dog sync does not pull in Arryved Venyu sales; the Arryved Venyu sync pushes sales data to the Yellow Dog API.
Importing Code Data
The Yellow Dog sync pulls in all Arryved Venyu Inventory ID codes.
Yellow Dog's sync can be run from any location that can access the Arryved Venyu API.
- *Inventory ID can only be pushed into Arryved Venyu once; they do not allow updates to this setting via their API.
- **Item Type is not available in the Arryved Venyu API for our sync to pull in automatically at this time; these codes must be populated in Yellow Dog manually or via a SQL script.
- In the Arryved Venyu back office, you will not see the ConversionID for a new item displayed until the Conversion Type is changed; there is no way to control that setting via the Arryved Venyu API.
Yellow Dog will be responsible for supporting their sync; Arryved Venyu will be responsible for supporting their sync.
