RTC Source Control for Document Management - Workspaces??


Glyn Costello (375) | asked Dec 18 '20, 5:01 a.m.

 Hi, 


Trialing the use of RTC as a document management tool for projects. Currently using the web browser with teh Stream > Component > Folders > Files. People can see, lock, edit, upload, etc. 

Started looking at the RTC Shell application, and it seems we have to expand to have workspaces and sandboxes. None of our team are developers so this is a bit unfamiliar. Do we just have the one workspace across the project team which everyone uses in their installation of RTC Shell? Or does each person have their own workspace?

With the shell application, the files are kept on local disk, so each user needs their own workspace.

If users tend to work on one file at a time, then the web browser is probably simplest.
If they work on multiple files at the same time, then having their own workspace is usually simplest (with some relatively simple training).   Having your own workspace means that RTC takes care of managing all your local files, so you don't have to download them manually (and remember where you put them).   It also has a GUI that reminds you when you have made changes that you have not uploaded.
