Bullhorn Mobile Sync allows you to use distribution lists to synchronize your Bullhorn contacts with your iPhone or iPad using the device's built-in sync software, which communicates directly with our servers. Contacts you add directly to your iPhone sync into Bullhorn as Personal Contacts and become a member of your "IntelliSync Default" distribution list. These contacts are private and no one can see them but you.

If you remove a contact from a distribution list that you are currently syncing, then that contact is removed from your iPhone. For this reason, if you add contacts to your device you must sync the IntelliSync Default distribution list in order for the contact to remain on your device. If you delete a contact from your device, it is not deleted from Bullhorn. Instead, it is added to the IntelliSync Deleted Contacts distribution list and is not syncable again unless it is removed from this list.
