Add a Team Member or Additional Device
Diode Drive can be used to collaborate on files with one or more people. Any file updates are automatically synchronized to all the Team Members, creating the same capability as a File Server, but with no IT configuration or cloud storage required.
Additionally, Diode Drive can be used with multiple Zones - each Zone has its own files and its own list of Team Members.
If you have not already setup Diode Drive, follow the instructions in this article.
After you've completed those steps, you will have Diode Drive installed on your computer with your first Zone.
- Ask a Team Member to also setup Diode Drive
They should follow the same steps in Setup Diode Drive, but for their own computer.
Once they have setup their account, have them send you their Account Name.
For steps 3-5, you can either watch this video or follow the steps below:
- Invite the Team Member
First, have your Team Member-to-be send you or tell you their Account Name.
To invite them, click the "+" icon next to "Team" to launch the Diode Drive Invite dialog:
Then, type their Account Name in the box provided and click "Invite Now!"
- Have the Team Member accept the Invite
Once you have invited your Team Member, they will need to Accept the Invite. Please note that the system can sometimes take up to five minutes to send an invite, so your Team Member may not see the invite right away.
If they don't see the Invite notification, they can go the Invites area in Diode Drive and accept the Invite from there.
- Start collaborating!
Now, the files in your Zone will be synchronized to your other Team Member, and if you click on their name in the Team list, you will be able to chat with them.
