Using a database server is the solution for that! This method lets you access the same database from different computers over the same wired local network; letting you simultaneously make bookings, create invoices, check in guests and more.
To give you multi user support, Lodgit Desk works together with the virtual database server cubeSQL.
This system is easy to install on an ordinary Windows, Macintosh or Linux computer in your local network. It also allows you to obtain a free license for up to two concurrent connections!
The cubeSQL server needs so little resources that you can install it on one of your existing computers that you work on every day.
Even though the setup is easy, we also offer detailed step by step instructions available to download as a PDF file. This document also shows how to set up the backup function, as well as answering the most common questions our clients asked us about the server.
What's important is that the computer running cubeSQL always remains switched on whenever someone is working with Lodgit Desk. That's because all users, regardless if they're on a Windows computer or a mac, will be accessing the same Lodgit database that's stored on the cubeSQL server.
After having installed and configured the server on a computer in your local network, you can switch Lodgit Desk over from single to multi user mode (and thus making use of the server) with the click of one button. If there is no database present on the server yet, you'll be able to upload your current work database immediately.
After that you can use any computer in your local network - be it a Windows machine or a Mac - to access your database
The connection to the database server is an optional add-on module for Lodgit Desk which you can add to your existing license at any time. The activation of this module can be ordered in our Online Shop. Afterwards this module will remain permanently activated in your license - so you won't face any future charges for it when renewing your license.
