Worksets and central model problem

Hi, i'm having some trouble with worksets, i've seen a lot of vedeos and guides (autodesk's ones too) about that and i got how it works, the only problem I have is about the central model..

 

If I save the central model in my pc (for examle in Desktop)then I can collaborate with 2 sessions of revit opened (with different nicknames) on the same model, but if I try to collaborate with another pc it doesn't work.

 

I know I have to save the central model to a network or something similar to share it live with those who works with me on that model, but I can't manage to do that..I tryied with Dropbox and Drive but it doesn't work..

 

Online I just can't find a clear explaination of what kind of service should I use to save it and collaborate on the same model from different computers, any help to make it clear?

thanks for your help.

Marco

All users need to be able to access the model in the same way in order for this to work.  Each user must have a unique user name as well and read write access to the file location.

 

Revit is very particular about how you access the central file...you can only create a local file in Revit by browsing to the central file location in the same way that it was created otherwise create new local will be grayed out.

 

So for example I saved my central file to my network using the following path:  \\Pc-sp01\g\_Support Testing\_S_Testing\Projects\2015\projectname.rvt

 

All users must get to this file the exact same way or they won't be able to create a local file through Revit.  

 

Example:

Path to Central

Can't create local because the path is different (ie using a mapped drive)
