Sync Strategies Until Accordance Fixes Most Glaring Weakness

Yes I titled that to be incendiary since I think sync is one of the 2 greatest weaknesses of Accordance 13. The other is notes.

 

So, how do you sync between your various devices. I have Dropbox attached to all of my installations. I use my MacBook Pro 90% of the time I use the full program. But I do occasionally use Windows. So, should I put my Accordance Files folder in Documents and sync via iCloud or put it in OneDrive and sync through that? Or should I store it in Dropbox and sync that way.

 

My pref - put it in iCloud, but if you do that, how do you access these files on Windows without having to copy/paste every time you use the program. Or will Dropbox sync solve this issue so it's not a big deal to have it in iCloud Docs on Mac and OneDrive on Windows?

 

I also considered using iCloud Drive sync on Windows (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201391)

 

Finally, if you would not want your advice quoted in an article or YouTube video (www.kevinpurcell.org and www.youtube.com/c/KevinPurcellonTheotek)

 

Thanks for the help!!!

I simply use Dropbox. Though I do save my sermon sessions in OneDrive but this is solely for back up purposes (sometime ago I had to reduce the amount of stuff I had on DrpBox because I did not want to pay for the service)

I must agree Kevin, syncing is the weak link of Accordance! Accordance is my "go to" program but I truly wish there was another way to be able to sync. If I only use my ipad air 2 and Macbook Air syncing seems to work ok most of the time. Once I throw in my Surface Pro (windows 10) things get messed up! I have had to dispense syncing with my Surface Pro.

You can have your iCloud documents available on Windows by installing "icloud for windows" from the Apple website.

 

If the synchronizing is a simple file based sync, it should be easy to use the iCloud synced folder.

I relocated files and use OneDrive to back up most of my stuff.  (Check Utilties > Choose Support Files Location) << !! DO BACK UP EVERYTHING before you do this in case things go wrong!!

I use Dropbox as a secondary backup.
