Good morning everyone.


I started using the program a few weeks ago and I'm really enjoying it. It is being of great help.

But since I'm a "newbie", I'm still having difficulties with some features. For example, when installing the program, I used my personal dropbox. However, I would like to know if it is possible to change the email (as I would like to create a specific dropbox for the congregation) without losing all the data already entered.

Furthermore, it is still unclear to me how to give access to other members of the congregation, with the appropriate permissions.

I will really appreciate the help you can give me.

PS: Sorry for my English. It is not my native language and I am using a translator.

OK, maybe I should start at the end in this case:

You want to share with other persons, and those persons should have different permissions. (More info is in the Help file, but that may be in English only.) This is only possible if each user has their own Dropbox account. 

So in your own Dropbox (online) you choose 'share' on the folder and share with another person. That person has to accept the share (before accepting the share they will suddenly see a similar file in their own Dropbox, but after accepting the share, they will actually see yours. Then in TheocBase they can select the syncfile they want to connect to, which should be yours). Then also he/she will become visible under Access Control, where roles can be assigned.

Maybe this partly answers your question about setting up a dedicated DB-account for the congregation, or continue using your own. (some use a congregation DB, and share the login details with selected users, but for TheocBase that will be only one user, so no means of differentiating the permissions)

I think setting up a new DB account to work with TB is not too difficult. Backup the database (settings) just to be sure. Log TB off of DB. Then reconnect to your 'new' DB account. It will create a new syncfile, just like it did when you connected to your own DB.

For accessing the database my personal preference is http://sqlitebrowser.org/

For editing templates I like to use http://brackets.io/

Thank you very much for your help. It was a lot easier than I imagined. I was just in doubt with the permissions.

For example, in testing, by giving the user permission as a
Life and Ministry Meeting Chairman, he had access to change any designation, even those that only the Coordinator of the Body of Elders or the Life and Ministry Meeting Overseer should have. The same is true of the Life and Ministry Meeting Overseer, who has access to change the designations that fall to the Coordinator. When selecting as Coordinator, he does not have access to changes at the weekend meeting, even if the reader is his responsibility. But, when selecting the public talk coordinator, he even has access to change the Watchtower Study conductor.

My question is whether it really should behave like this, or if it is a wrong configuration
on my part.

Well, yes, I think the exact permissions for each role could be up for debate... It is not your configuration.

 For an exact description (of how it is, not necessarily how it should be) see the Help file
