Library Sync on demand only

Hello!

Is there a way to turn off the comparison of local and .library files when you log into the repository, and perform that function only when a library sync is requested from the repository menu? I'd like to reduce the time to accomplish a repository login. Thank you!

Jane

    Hello Jane

    I don't think you can prevent the Library from synchronising. According to the Help file, you can hide the dialogue that allows you to choose what to synchronise, but it doesn't prevent it from running:

    Select "Remember selection" to retain the same selection next time you connect to the repository and select "Do not show this dialog next time" to have the library silently update from now on.

    Unless you have a large library that changes frequently, I wouldn't expect the Library synchronisation to be a major influence on how long it takes to connect to the repository; mind you, that's just me thinking logically, so I could be wrong 😊.

    Thank you for the response, George. You are correct, there isn't a way to do this. I ended up submitting a case with SAP, and I believe there will be a change request submitted.

    My thought was, I don't even want it leaving my client to go to the repository to look at those files to see if they were updated. I wanted it to stay "heads down" working on getting me ready to do work on the client. The idea came up when a user was sharing her screen and there was a need to look at a model she had been changing on her client. She had to log into PD, and the startup took about 4 minutes and the conversation had long since moved on. We have a couple of other things making things slow, but I thought every little reduction in the process would help. It would be nice to know details about what the process is, but that is another topic. 😉

    Thank you again, for answering!

    Jane
