I am trying to us my NAS to collaborate with someone who does not have a NAS and is not a user on the NAS. The goal, similar to dropbox or iCloud Drive, is that we can add/edit files to this folder together without having to upload via a web interface. Is there a way they can see the folder on their Mac so that they don’t have to upload their edits via the web interface? I’m unsure if Synology Drive has this feature. Thanks all!
Synology drive has this exact feature and they just came out with an on demand sync version. I will say the on demand sync can be hit or miss for some setups. If you do a full sync (files live on the hard drive) it’s pretty bullet proof
Got it, maybe I missed the KB article. I’ve shared folders in Synology Drive but the other person always has to download the files from the web interface instead of having a folder appear on their Mac.
AAHHHHHH, That’s the part I was missing! I have to make them users on the Synology. I thought there was a way to avoid that step. I’m going to try this out now. Thanks Spacerex! Where is the donate button!? =)
However they can always use the XML to recompile, as I was wanting to share a media folder with folders that they can pin as they are assigned edits. And then when they are done they can “Remove Download”.
