Logging In

EditShare Connect is an application that runs on your Windows or OS X workstation and allows you to connect to any space on any of your EditShare servers from a straightforward interface, and (on Windows) to map it to a drive letter. It then remembers which Media Space, Project Space, or other spaces you are connected to (and to what drive letters they are mapped) the next time you log in, even from a different workstation, and automatically reconnects you to the same spaces. For designated users, EditShare Connect also provides limited access to the management functions of EditShare. See the EditShare Administrator's Guide for instructions on installing EditShare Connect on editors’ workstations.

CAUTION: Do not connect to EditShare from more than one workstation at a time with the same username. This issue can corrupt your data. If you need to change workstations, always log out of EditShare on one workstation before you log in on another one.
