Best Practices for storing source files

Mar 17, 2016

Storyline does not come with a server where source documents (.story files) can be checked \-in for version control. What best practices are being followed around the world for saving source files in a secure place other than the local PC. Are there any guidelines for version control?

Hi, Mark -- Thanks for reaching out! And while I will defer to the community to share their specific ideas and advice for file storage and version control, I thought I would pass along the following in case you'd like to take a look:

Hi Mark,

I'll defer to the community in regards to best practices, but wherever you keep the back up you'll want to ensure that you download it to work on locally, as working off a shared/network drive can cause issues as described here. I know a lot of people use Dropbox or similar as a back up to keep files there as well.
