I am sorry if this question has been asked before, I have been sifting through the forums and have not found this particular question so bear with me.
I am working with a research team-we have a library of 1082 references and would like to be working off of the same copy.
I created an endnote web account and connected my desktop library to the web library, which worked out very well. I then decided to test the sharing option so I added all the references in “my references” to a group, which I named “All References.” I then created another endnote web account using another email address of mine. I proceeded to share that “All References” group with this alternate email address. I logged out of endnote web and logged in with my alternate email address. Sure enough, I had access to read and write in the group.
Here’s the problem: I then went to my laptop and opened a new library. I proceeded to sign into endnote web using that alternate email address and try to transfer the library from web to desktop. However, because the references all exist in a shared library, I kept getting an error message when I tried to transfer because technically I have no references of my own in the alternate email (only 1082 shared references). The error message said " ‘Unfiled’ Web folder is empty. No references available for downloading."
My question is this: is there a way to connect the endnote web library to a desktop library as a collaborator (and not the original library creator)?? I do not want to invite my project collaborators to share the “all references” group if they can only edit it online. I want them to be able to open endnote on their desktops and collaborate with me on the same library. How can I do this?
thank you so much for your help,
