SoftPlan+ File Sharing

SoftPlan+ has the ability to upload projects to the cloud server. You can also share the project with other SoftPlan+ users. You do this by entering the other user's SoftPlan Key number. I would like to create a tutorial showing how file sharing works but in order to do that I need to try it out with another SoftPlan+ subscriber. If someone is willing to try this out let me know. I will blot out all the key numbers in the tutorial so your number will not be displayed to anyone.

 

Bill is the owner and maintainer of SoftPlanTuts.com

I would love to help Bill.  I just ordered the upgrade yesterday though.  You can probably find someone who already has it.  Not sure how long delivery is going to take.

Thanks Dennis. Let me know when you get installed. I would like to have several people participate in the test since you can share with multiple keys.

First Guinea Pig

Ok, who wants to be the first guinea pig and share a test project with the participants?

I'm thinking that once the project is shared everybody makes some changes to the plan and see how it progresses. Then I want to coordinate and have a couple of people try to edit the project at the same time and see if there are any locks in place to only allow one person to edit at a time.

I am really glad I ordered the Plus!!  It is great for sharing review files with the client.  It is also great for sharing between the 2 computers in the office.  We always now know that the updated file is on the cloud. Super!!

 

Anytime you want to go for it Bill, let me know.

File Sharing - Softplan + In The Cloud

This ability to post your project to the cloud and allow others to view or make changes is really neat.
