Administer Shared Settings
Enterprise Organizer Pro has an easy sharing feature for sharing cabinets, folder templates, and naming options between users. System administrators can also use this feature to disable specific Enterprise Organizer Pro features on their users’ machines.
Once you’ve begun sharing, the Admin Tool will help you edit the shared settings, establish user groups, and carry out other administrative tasks. Access the Admin Tool from the Enterprise Organizer Pro Tools button > Administer Shared Settings.
Connecting to Shared Settings
The first time you open the Admin Tool, it might ask you to open a shared folder. To explain, Enterprise Organizer Pro keeps shared settings in a simple folder out on the network where all of your users can access them. See The Shared Settings Folder for more information.
To open the shared settings, just click Open in the Admin Tool and browse out to the shared settings folder. If you have more than one folder of shared settings, you can administer all of them with the Admin Tool. Just use the Open button to select the one you want to work on.
The user who sets up the shared settings folder will automatically become the administrator, or in other words, the user who is allowed to edit the settings with the Admin Tool.
The administrator can allow other users into the Admin Tool. To add more administrators:
- First find out their Windows username (the name they log in with). To find it, open Enterprise Organizer Pro on the user’s machine > Tools button > Connect to Shared Settings; their username will display at the bottom of the dialog box
- Now open the Admin Tool on the administrator’s machine
- Click the Admin button
- Enter the usernames of the new administrators, one per line
- Press Ctrl+S to save the changes, then close the list
You can also find your username in the Admin Tool. Open the Admin Tool and look on the title bar at the top of the dialog. It will say Administrator - [username] where "[username]" is the current Windows user.

Rolling Out Enterprise Organizer Pro
The Admin Tool can assist with rolling out Enterprise Organizer Pro on the network by providing an install file for silent installs, deploying product keys, and automatically supplying shared settings for the user. See Administer Shared Settings for more information.
Users and Groups
If you have a large network and you need to roll out more than one Enterprise Organizer Pro configuration, look into setting up different user groups.
