My wife, and I, are both involved in research. Although we work in separate areas, there are overlaps in our research interests. I bought DT3Pro and the Server license in the hope that it would give us both separate research databases, and a simple way of sharing relevant articles etc.
Initially, I set up the server on my desktop machine, and configured syncing via iCloud. This worked well on my iphone and ipad. I now have a separate server, and I am about to move my databases over to that machine, and add my wife’s machine and phone as a user. However, I am now wondering if this is the wrong approach. Presumably, the server won’t be able to sync with both of us via iCloud, so we will be limited to syncing when we are at the office. I can create a VPN back to the server, but all of this is making me think that I am taking the wrong approach. So, my questions are:
- Would it be better to simply install the pro license on both of our desktop machines, and let iCloud synch to our individual devices?
- Is there a way - under that scenario - that we can still have a shared database?
Obviously, I am completely new to DT, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
