Notification that Autodesk REVIT files are in use so the other users can't edit them

Notification that Autodesk REVIT files are in use so the other users can't edit them

REVIT is using central models for managing and syncing REVIT files.

When more than 1 user works on that central file the problem is syncing user file to that central model. Now the REVIT app crash after some time and the user lost all the changes and the local file is not synced with central file.

 

So if there will be a solution (like on windows OS - smb share) that: 

- lets say 3 users are working locally on the same REVIT central file

- than 1 user click to sync the file to central model, the 2nd and 3rd user (if they will try to sync at the same time as 1st user) will get some kind off notification, popup ... that file is in use or something like that.

 

Then users (second, third, ... user) will know that someone is already syncing and they will try a min or two later ... this is how SMB file share and REVIT works locally (on local network). 

I hope I wrote as clearly as possible 😀

Ok. 
So we are using now dropbox for 1 week. Overall is working fine, but the problems are central RVT files. Not a file itself but syncing and for now using dropbox is not an option, sorry. 

I will wait for your news of course. 

Thank you.
