Cloud Sync

Cloud Sync allows you to store and sync script, media, and cue files between two or more computers using a DropBox account. 


Packing and uploading a script


To pack and upload a script, follow these steps:

  1. On the Advanced tab, click Cloud Sync.
  2. In the pop-up window, click Sign In. Sign in to Dropbox with your username and password.
  3. Allow MediaShout to create a folder in your Dropbox account.
  4. In the Script Area, select the script you want to sync.
  5. On the File tab, click Pack Current Script to Cloud.
  6. In the Cloud Sync pop-up window, click the Upload button for the script. 


Uploading media and cues


You can also use Cloud Sync to save media files and cues for use in other presentations:

  • To upload a media file, open Cloud Sync, click the Media tab, then drag a media file into the window. Click the Upload button.
  • To upload a cue, open Cloud Sync, click the Cue tab, then drag a cue into the window. Click the Upload button.


Syncing scripts, media, and cues


Use Cloud Sync to synchronize changes made to scripts, media, and cues, between computers. When you open Cloud Sync, files are marked with the following icons:

  • Cloud with Up Arrow: File is on the computer but not yet uploaded to DropBox. Click to upload.
  • Cloud with Down Arrow: File is in DropBox but not yet downloaded to the computer. Click to download.
  • Cloud with Check Mark: File is on the computer and in DropBox. 

Tip: If you make changes to a file, make sure to upload it to Cloud Sync when you are finished. This ensures that other users always have access to the latest version of the file.
