  • Hi Vinothraj,

    According to the function of work folders, Work Folders provide access to the latest data, no matter whether the users are located internally or externally. That should work. Different user log on to the computer, user connects to the work folder, then sync.

    Please refer the articles below about the details of work folder

  • So basically, you want a folder for every user.

    And you want to set a quota for that folder,

    For folder quota, search on File Server Resource Manager quota settings. (search Bing or Google) You never specify your Windows OS, you might need to include that on your search.

    If you want a folder for every user search on Active Directory Home Profile Settings, the home profile is unique to every user. I guess this is what you want if I understand correctly.

  • A side note not wrote yet, if two user are modifying a document in a shared workfolder, the last writer always win.

    Workfolder goal was more a 1:1 relation, not an X:1. If you can assume a lost document as it's for a shared room, then yes it can work.

  • Vinothraj,

    Each user that logs into the PC in the meeting room would have a unique Work Folders directory. The data stored in the Work Folders directory would sync to the user’s directory on the Work Folders server.

    As mentioned by Phillippe, Work Folders enables users to access their data on the Work Folders server. Work Folders doesn’t support team shares or collaboration functionality. If you need this functionality, I’d recommend evaluating OneDrive for Business.

    Thanks,

    Jeff
