- [Instructor] In this video we're going…to talk about performing routine maintenance…on your Central Model.…So I recommend that you do maintenance…on the central file on a regular basis.…That'll help everything run smoothly…and keep the Central Model healthy.…And it's not unlike what you do with your car…when you bring it into the shop on a regular basis…and have the fluids checked and have the filters changed.…And this helps you keep your car running smoothly,…but more importantly prevents future,…more costlier problems from occurring.…So in a similar way we want to perform routine maintenance…on our Central Models.…
Now to do so, we need to open the Central Model directly.…And, of course, this is in violation of rule number one,…which says don't ever work in the Central Model.…Well, just like when your car is in the shop…and up on the lift while they're doing the maintenance,…you can't drive the car, the same will be true here,…we do need to open up the Central Model to work on it,…but, of course, the reason that we'll be able…
Paul F. Aubin teaches you the skills you need to create your central model, configure worksharing settings, and perform ongoing maintenance as the project progresses. Learn how to move a central file, update links, upgrade projects, open local copies in detached mode, and archive the project when it's done. Plus, find out how to monitor sharing and user activity. This course covers all the skills you need to manage worksharing projects from start to finish.
