OneDrive

Postby Tomas » Fri Jun 07, 2019 6:53 am

Hello,
we would like to start using the OneDrive instead of the company network. Is it possible to set universal paths to OneDrive (I mean for A-Z Folders, Export Path, Letter)? Problem is that I use OD on three computers and the path to OneDrive is different (C:\users\dentistname\onedrive)? I have 3 paths from OneDrive to folders as a URL only. Is it possible to set the URL´s to OD?
Thank you for your help.

Maybe you could go to each computer and make a symbolic link from a folder path that all three computers know about to the corresponding folder of unique path.
E.g. create a "C:\Custom\OpenDental\Path" on each computer and then utilize the mklink command to link them to their corresponding "C:\users\[name]\onedrive" folder.
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/administration/windows-commands/mklink

Then you should be able to use the new folder as the path within Open Dental now that all workstations know about the same folder.
The best thing about a boolean is even if you are wrong, you are only off by a bit.

However, this is only helpful if each of these unique OneDrive paths on each computer point to the same OneDrive account. If each doctor / computer has a different OneDrive account you have defeated the purpose. I just assumed this was not the case.
