Wondering what would be the best way to have all of my family members able to use tonido?
I would like all of their phones to auto sync the pictures but also to be able to give the access to their own folders on what has become our server.
Do we just have all users logging on with the same credentials under the same account or can I create users?
When I looked at this is seems to be creating another instance of tonido which would get a bit confusing??
Any advice would be most welcome.
Many thanks
Jon

Hello,
Thanks for posting!
You can share the folder to which auto sync has to happen and create guests and give them the read/write permissions.

Thanks for your reply, however we are not using a sync'd folder. Instead I browse across the various directories untill I find the file I am looking for. Otherwise I would have to sync many, many folders and my device's would be very busy and confusing.

Sync is the only option to maintain upto date information on the shared folders.

Thanks, yes I realise that. I guess I'm using Tonido as a simple old file server where I can access my pc remotely and download any file I choose, I would like other members of my family to have the same ability that's all.
