Sharing Package Resources

In Enterprise mode, PDQ Deploy allows you to share your deploy packages with other administrators who belong to the same PDQ Deploy license. You can also choose to access shared packages from other PDQ Deploy administrators who belong to the same Enterprise license.

IMPORTANT: Sharing is permitted only between activated administrator accounts (Enterprise Activation) on an Enterprise license. It is recommended that both databases use the same version of PDQ Deploy to avoid any incompatibility.

IMPORTANT: Once a console has permitted sharing and then turned off sharing in Preferences, it can take over an hour for the other administrator accounts to no longer view the shared data.

For information on Enterprise Activation, see the following video.
