Since our release, Tonido Workspace was a P2P sync application (similar to Microsoft Groove), allowing multiple Tonido users to synchronize workspaces among them. While this was great, many users were hampered by the fact that they had to install Tonido in all their machines and setup a group etc before they can work and collaborate together on a project.
Now, with the upcoming Tonido 2.x release, things are much simpler. You can now give Tonido Guest users access to your workspaces. This means they can access your workspace and collaborate together without needing to have anything installed.
So how does it work?
1) Add Guest Permissions for Specific Workspaces, by clicking the “Add/Remove” link and then clicking on the “Guest Users” link.
2) Give access to Guests for that workspace
3) The guest as usual, logs into Tonido (for example, via the guest link, http://john.tonidoid.com/guest) or through the “Login As Guest” link in the login screen.
4) The workspace link now shows up in the guest’s home page and when he launches the link, he will see all workspaces shared with him and he can make changes to all those workspaces.
Note that, if you have setup synchronization between Tonido accounts for a workspace, that will continue to function as well. So you can share your workspace with guests AND synchronize it between multiple accounts. This truly makes it quite powerful and flexible.
We expect to release this feature in the upcoming Tonido 2.10 release.
