Managing Workspaces | Shared workspaces visual guide

We’ve illustrated the most typical use cases of using Connecter on multiple machines or in a Teamwork environment.

The most simple setup is to have all your assets plus Connecter’s workspace on an external drive. It’s important to have the external drive under the same name (e.g. D:\, E:\, etc.) across all your computers (desktop PC and laptop for example) so that all paths to folders and assets in Connecter stay intact. If for examples on your laptop the assets are in D:\assets\ but when you attach the external drive to your other computer it’s E:\assets\, Connecter will show all added folders as missing. In this case you can use the relocate option (right click on a missing folder) to show Connecter the new folder’s location.

Another option is to store all assets and workspace on a shared local network device (network drive, NAS, File server, etc.).

Another good option to share assets and workspace across multiple computers is to use Dropbox (or Drive or other similar service). It’s important that if you use Dropbox you must not use Connecter simultaneously on multiple computer as there’s a big risk to damage your workspace when Dropbox synchronizes the changes.

If multiple users will use Connecter simultaneously in a shared team environment you must create Team workspace and share it on a local network device (network drive, NAS, File server, etc.). The assets can be shared on the same(or other) location or via Dropbox (or Drive or other similar service).

 

If one or more team members are not part of the same local network they will need to access the shared Team workspace via VPN connection.
