I am trying to decide on upgrading to the server edition and I am hoping someone can help me. I have two questions:
I have an iMac and a Macbook pro and I want to be able to sync between them. As I understand it I can only be running DT on one machine at a time in order to avoid sync conflicts. But in order to access databases via a web interface “DEVONthink needs to be running and will only serve open databases” (manual p.156). Is it possible to keep synced, local copies of my databases on my two machines and use the web interface? If so how can I avoid a tragic mess? Sometimes the internet connection to my main machine at home (iMac) is wonky so I like to have a database copy on my laptop that I don’t need internet access for.
I think the server edition gives me the collaboration possibilities that I have been using tools like Zotero groups for, without purchasing more ‘seats’. Is there a cap on how many people you can share a database with? I am a student and work on research projects with others. Can I add my research teammates to a database hosted on my iMac and/or on my laptop?
Thank you all for your knowledge! I have been using DT since 2010 but have never really used it to its potential and I hoping to change that with the new version!
