There are two types of conflicts:

• Content Conflicts: The actual lesson contents are different.

• Meta Data Conflicts: The tags or status setting a for a lesson are different.

This is an example of a meta data conflict. I can select to:

2. Keep the ScreenSteps Live version

In this example I have decided to keep the server version.
