Can you administer ePADD on one computer and provide Delivery access via another?

0 votes

Would it be possible for me as our archivist to install ePADD on my laptop and do all the email harvesting and management from there and then install ePADD on the reading room computer and us it to provide patron access via Delivery through the later? Or does it all need to happen on the same machine?

Relatedly, can you configure the software to store the harvested email files on a networked drive or does it have to store them on a single host computer?

Hi Alston,

Yes, ePADD modules are designed to be run on different computers. More information can be found in the user guide:

The new configuration file allows you to identify a custom location for ePADD working files. Additional information on customizing the configuration file can be found in the user guide.

Best,
