This documentation page references Altium NEXUS/NEXUS Client (part of the deployed NEXUS solution), which has been discontinued. All your PCB design, data management and collaboration needs can now be delivered by Altium Designer and a connected Altium 365 Workspace. Check out the FAQs page for more information.

Summary

The Make Available On Server dialog is used to convert a standard, non-managed project into a Managed Project, which is then stored in a repository connected to a server. You can easily access, open, edit, and save project documents in a transparent way - with modified files being checked in whenever you run the Save command. 

Access

To access this dialog, right-click on a project in the Projects panel that has not yet been added to the server, then select Make Project Available on Server from the context menu.

The Make Project Available on Server command is only available if the installation of Altium NEXUS is currently signed in to a server.
