Customise the AD Connect sync scheduler time window

By default AD Connect automatically syncs to Azure AD every 30 minutes. Although this works fine in most companies, it could be considered too long a period if there is a high rate of change within an organisation. 

To alter the default sync period use Powershell

Set-ADSyncScheduler -CustomizedSyncCycleInterval 00:05:00 

The above command sets the sync period to 5 mins. It's important that you do not set the sync period too low, so that sync jobs don't begin to clash. A delta sync should not take a full 5 minutes unless the AD of a large enterprise scale.
