Is it possible to store ePADD modules outside of a User's folder?

+1 vote

Hi -

We're most likely going to start a processing project that will involve a number of people working in shifts on the same shared PC. ePADD, by default, stores its working directories in a user's home folder. Is it possible to have those folders exist in a location accessible by multiple user logins? Does a config file control this?

best,

Hi Farrell,

Offering support for user customization of the location of working directories is on the roadmap, but has unfortunately not yet been implemented.

Thanks for letting us know about this use case to help guide development.

Best,

Josh

Thanks! We have a workaround for now but good to know it's on the map.

ePADD is a software package developed by Stanford University's Special Collections & University Archives that supports archival processes around the appraisal, ingest, processing, discovery, and delivery of email archives.
