HiI've found that when I set the flag to rejected on LR Mobile for quite a few of the RAW photos in one of the collections, the changes didn't all get updated on my mac.Alex

Can you get it to repeat the behavior or did it happen just once? What happens if you try again?

It's definitely not the first time it's happened. Usually I have to unsync then resync the collection. Which is a pain when I've done some flagging in LR mobile which hasn't been taken to my mac.

This happens to me too! I was setting flags in LR Mobile on iPad, hoping they would sync to LR on my mac, but instead they just vanished.

Any solution to this problem? I use MacAir and Iphone7, flagged photos in iPhone are not synced in desktop app in MacAir (not all, 90% are synced). Please provide a solution urgently.

I have the same problem using LR CC on my samsung galaxy phone. I flag images and then edit at my desktop only 40 of my 55 showed up flagged. I also had an issue the day before that I flagged 9 images on the desktop and only 7 images will show up in mobile view. The 2 flagged files are completly gone from mobile. It sounds weird but while flagging sometime I would reject by mistake then go back and flag. I suspect it is the ones that have accidentally been flagged as rejects at one point are then no longer synced even if you flag them again. I am going to try and test this theory to confirm. In the meantime I tried the fix of deleting the sync data from  the LR APP data and everything re-synced and still not showing those missing flags. SUPER FRUSTRATING!!
