    Copying of extra documents

    If you want other users documents you need to specify this under Setting - Other documents. This will create a wishlist that's sent to the central SO_arc\wishlist the next time you click Start to synchronize with the central database. A copylist is created based on the wishlist when SORTS is run on the server

    The wishlist contains the following documents

    GG\2000.2\Super001.zip

    GG\2000.2\Sterp001.som

     

    Before SORT

    After SORT

    In the local directory there is no GG directory

    In the local directory there is a GG directory with 2000.2 with the following files:

    Super001.zip

    Sterp001.som

    In the central directory there is a GG directory

    with 200.1, 2000.2 and Travel

     

     

    Exclude list

    The document extensions you add here will all be copied from central to travel and vice versa. But, if you use a modem to connect to the central database you may experience that matching each documents take a lot of time. To reduce this time, you may choose to exclude matching for certain document types. New documents will still be copied, but the matching to determine what document was last edited is excluded.
