Make Available Online

The Make Available Online dialog

Summary

The Make Available Online dialog is used to register a local, unmanaged project with your connected Altium 365 Workspace. There are essentially three ways to work with projects:

  • The recommended and most powerful method is to create a new project directly within the connected Workspace. If you have an existing project, you can bring it into your Workspace by making it available online and opting to enable formal version control. In each case, the project will be stored and managed through the Workspace’s native Version Control System. This gives you the full functionality for a managed project when working with it through Altium Designer. Having your project fully managed by the Workspace is the only way to share that project with multiple people for editing through Altium Designer (provided they are part of the Workspace team).
  • A local project that is not under version control can be registered with your Workspace using a methodology called Simple Sync. A mirror of your project is created in the Workspace and synchronized. Saved local files are automatically synchronized with their mirrored project counterparts in the Workspace.
  • A local project that is under external version control can also be registered with your Workspace using the Simple Sync methodology. A mirror of your project is created in the Workspace and synchronized. Once local file changes are saved and committed to the external design repository, those changes are automatically synchronized with their mirrored project counterparts in the Workspace.

Simple Sync allows you to enjoy the collaborative features available through the Altium 365 platform while keeping your original project right where it is. However, bear in mind that for a local design project (not under external VCS), that project can be edited by a single person only (the owner of that project - the one who made it available online to the Workspace).

For more information on projects under the management of the Workspace’s native VCS, see Management of Projects from within Altium Designer. For more information on the Simple Sync methodology, see Making an Existing Unmanaged Project Available Online.

Access

To access this dialog, right-click on an unmanaged project in the Projects panel, then choose the Make Project Available Online command from the context menu.

A control to access the dialog is also available from the General tab of the Project Options dialog when connected to a Workspace.

Options/Controls

Simple Mode

  • Project Name - the name of the project in the Workspace. By default, the name will be that of the original project.
  • Description - enter the desired description of the project.
  • Enable Formal Version Control - check this option to add the project under the Workspace's own built-in VCS (Git). This option is unchecked by default, where the project files will simply be stored in the Workspace for basic access and to enable sharing with others for viewing and commenting only - a less formal Simple Sync as it were. It is recommended to enable formal version control, as by doing so you will have access to the maximum functionality offered through, and by, the Workspace and the Altium 365 platform.
If the unmanaged project is already under version control (an external design repository) this option will be enabled and grayed out, with text highlighting that your project is already under version control. That is to say, it will remain under the external VCS design repository, and not be added to the Workspace's own built-in VCS (Git) design repository. Simple Sync applies, but of course, multiple collaborators can continue to work on/edit the design, since it is under VCS.
  • Advanced - click to access the Advanced version of the dialog.

Advanced Mode

  • Folder - this field is used to specify where the folder for the mirrored project - within the Workspace's folder structure - is to be created. The default path for new projects is specified on the Admin - Settings - Projects page of the Workspace's browser interface (by default, this will be Projects\<ProjectName>). Click the to open the Choose Folder dialog, which itself is a trimmed down version of the Explorer panel, from where you can browse to and select a different server folder if required.
