Am hoping the below is possible.
I have an instance where I have six people that will have the same database (one on each machine), to ensure that any changes are made when they come into the office are picked up for all I want to use the synchronize feature to update the central instance so that everyone will also update however I am having issues using the syn feature via the FTP settings as well as setting up automatic rules for it.
Would love any help that can be provided
A sync requires read, write, rename and delete permissions. FTP access often doesn't provide this level of access. Using a standard network drive will fix this issue.
What sort of automatic rule did you have in mind? Some sort of audit trail would be a good idea if you have 6 people changing the database. Check out the trigger examples at this site.
