Two Ways to Install Time Logger on a Multi-User System
|Top Previous Next|
Overview - Installing Time Logger on a Network
You have two options for installing Time Logger in a multi-user environment so that all users are able to store their time records and common data in a set of common databases:
In either case, you need these two installation files:
setuptimelogger.exe - the installer that sets up a complete installation of Responsive Time Logger on either a server drive or a local computer.
setupuser.exe - the installer that connects each user to the network server where Time Logger's central databases are located. Be sure to put this file in the folder where Time Logger is installed on the server and run it at each user's computer.
Which option is best for you depends on the characteristics of your network system and users. Option 1 is simplest, because you only have one installation of Time Logger to maintain, but it can be the slowest to start. Option 2 takes a little more effort to set up but runs the fastest.
Finally, if some or all of your users cannot access the common drive, you can simply install Time Logger to each user's machine, and use the techniques described in Maintaining Multiple Copies of a Database to combine the data.
