Network server, sharing files?
ChiefProspective posted a topic in General Q & AWe are a design build office considering purchasing a new drafting software, and it seems as though Chief has almost everything we are looking for. From searching here and looking over prior threads, I understand that the program doesn't have support for multiple users working on files that are stored on a network server. If you have multiple users who need to work on a file (not at the same time), how do you keep track of the modifications? Are you using a third party software program to control the file locking and copying the file from the server down to the local machine's hard drive and copy the modified version back up? Looking for ideas on what real people are finding works for them in an office environment. All of our people are using Windows now, but there is some interest in moving to the Mac for on site work, so an ideal solution would work on both platforms.
