I use Trimble Connect Synch at all times when I’m using both my home and work computer. Not through the SketchUp feature, but through the Trimble Connect Synch App that I have installed on both machines.
I use it to keep one part of my component library in synch across both machines.
My problem: On both computers, the app is started automatically when I boot the computer. At home, it remembers my credentials and signs in automatically, but at work, no matter what I try, I have to log in to Trimble Connect every time I boot!
Here’s my setups:
Work: Unlimited Storage on Trimble Connect based on my work SketchUp Pro subscription. Windows 10 - I can’t give the exact build since right now, I’m at home composing this. Trimble Connect Synch App - cant give version right now for the same reason, but I don’t recall an update on either machine since I installed it, so probably the same as the version at home.
Home: Limited Storage on Trimble Connect based on my personal SketchUp Pro Classic license with Maintenance and Support up to date. Windows Version 10.0.18362 Build 18362. Trimble Connect Synch App version 184.108.40.206.
On both machines, my Trimble Connect Synch App uses the same credentials - the one associated with my work SketchUp Pro Subscription.
At home, I’ve set the only TC Synch App setting that seems to be involved as follows:
At work, after being forced to log in every morning, the “Stay Signed In” option is unchecked - and I then “check” it. This action causes my work TC Synch App to show the same as the above screen capture.
At home, I shut down and restart Windows - the TC Synch App automatically logs into TC and synchs my component collection TC project every hour - all without needing any action on my part save starting Windows.
At work, I shut down and restart Windows - the TC Synch App starts, but doesn’t automatically log in. Once I re-enter my credentials, it synchs the same project every hour.
This is, admittedly, a minor annoyance, but it’s one that’s repeated every day I work, and it bugs me!
A couple of additional notes:
I haven’t given my SketchUp versions since this absolutely doesn’t involve the SketchUp App - only the TC Connect Synch App. The problem occurs whether or not I ever start SketchUp during a home or work session. And I only open SketchUp itself about once a week at work.
I should perhaps also mention that I used Windows 10 Professional both at home and work.
