"Always On" Personal Server Software Enables Managed Notebook Sharing for OS X Users)
NoteShare Server is an enhanced version of AquaMinds NoteShare collaborative technology, that lets you and a classroom or project team share notebook documents without having to leave the notebooks open and running on anyone's personal computer. Instead, NoteShare users can store and organize the notebooks they want to share on one central computer running NoteShare Server, which can continually serve and manage notebooks for viewers. In addition, notebook owners or administrators can conveniently manage notebook sharing from their own computer, using Server's companion tool, NoteShare Administrator.
NoteShare Server manages shared notebooks from public and private spaces, just like NoteShare. But with Server, notebooks are shared from a dedicated computer, where they can remain continually available to viewers, without having to remain open. NoteShare Server requires no extra steps to share a notebook or make it accessible to viewers. Even on a re-start or re-boot, your Server is already managing and sharing your notebooks. It's that easy.
At the same time that NoteShare Server is sharing your team's notebooks, you can use it like a regular version of NoteShare, to create and work with personal notebooks that aren't shared with anyone, or to share them yourself (where they aren't managed by Server).
Easily administer and service your NoteShare Sever locally or remotely from any computer, using the companion application, NoteShare Administrator.
