If you have a live and a development environment, you can map/link shared directory between both. It is useful to move files between two environments, i.e., updating dev with live data.
To do that:
To map dev shared folder to live; access live via RDP, open windows browser, right click on ‘This PC’, click on ‘add a network location’, and you will open add network location wizard, click next.
In the next page click on ‘Choose a custom network location’ and click on ‘next’, on the Internet or network address field input your dev directory.
You can find this in your dev welcome kit under ‘To connect to the shared folder from another Planning Analytics environment, use:’ click on next.
Put in your dev fileshare username and password click on Next.
In the next page you can give a friendly name such as <server_name>_Dev click on next and next then finish.
And now you have a dev directory in your live environment!
