Shared workspace and hot desks

Hello, 

Not sure if this is the write section for this, but please let me know if not.

We are looking at using hot desks at our company. We currently use the cloud version of plastic. Is there a proper way to have this set up so each user doesn't have to download the entire repo when they log in to the computer? Thanks!

Hi,

The Plastic workspaces are linked to the Plastic client. if you have different Plastic SCM clients/machines, I'm afraid you cannot share the same local workspace.

If you use Gluon (or "cloaked.conf" in the Plastic GUI), you can configure the files be downloaded in your local workspaces. I mean it's not mandatory for a user to download all the files from the repositories but just the files you need: https://www.plasticscm.com/documentation/gluon/plastic-scm-version-control-gluon-guide

Carlos.

This seems different from what I am asking about. Lets say I have person A, person B, and person C. A comes into work on Mondays and Tuesdays. He uses an available computer. Then on Wednesday and Thursday, B comes in and uses that same computer. C uses that computer on Fridays. They all work on the same project. Is there a way to make it so each person doesn't have to download the repo and they use their own plastic account? The following week, they may not end up using the same computer. So Just trying to avoid multiple downloads of the same data.

Hi,

Normally the workspaces are handled per user. But if you copy the "C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\plasitc4\plastic.workspaces" file the client binaries folder "C:\Program Files\PlasticSCM5\client", this configuration will be read by all the machine users.

Anyway, the idea of every user having their own workspace is that you can work in your changes isolated from the rest of the team and you submit your changes when you think are ready. It sounds a bit strange that both of them are using the same local working copy to peform the changes in the project.

Regards,

Carlos.

I guess I'm just trying to figure out the best way for a hybrid setup where people may be in the office one day and at home the next, and someone else could use that computer the next day. Also, because we're a gaming studio, the project is REALLY huge, so keeping the files in google drive just really wouldn't work.

This could be a possible worakround.
