The reason why I use dropbox is so my colleague can access the latest version of my working files. From what I understand if I were to use our work's standard shared drive it would mess up the file because it's buried so deep.

I keep my published files on my C drive, so I figured dropbox would be safe for me. Do you have a suggestion for a way to save working files so that they're accessible to others?

Hi Holly

When working on an Articulate Presenter presentation in a collaborative environment with other developers, I recommend that you use the following workflow:

1. Use the Send to Articulate Presenter Package feature to make an exact copy of the project and the included Engage interactions and Quizmaker quizzes per the method in the article below:

2. Copy the resulting zip file to your network drive for storage and sharing.

3. When you need to edit or publish the presentation, copy the zip file to your local hard drive and extract it.

4. Edit and / or publish the presentation.

5. Then repeat steps 1-4 as necessary.

By working with the project files on your local hard drive, you'll prevent any corruption or erratic behavior of the files that might have occurred by working on a network drive. Also, this method ensures that all your Engage interactions and Quizmaker quizzes stay properly linked together.
