“My Tools” and Different Profiles

  • “My Tools” and Different Profiles

    This one is more of a question than a tip. The T&T (Tips and Tricks) will hopefully come in the answers.

    I’m pondering the idea of creating different profiles to streamline different submittal reviews. My question is, if I created different tool in My Tool tool-chest, to leverage the use of shortcuts, can each profile support a different “My Tool”? Or does it “follow” the registered user for the account?

    I believe the “My Tools” toolset stays with the individual user, therefore doesn’t transfer when distributed because it already exists on that new machine. I try to keep everything in one Profile as much as possible and break down different workflows, departments, or maybe submittal types into individual “ToolSet” rather than Profiles. This way you only have to manage one profile when updating and deploying. Different teams can turn off the ToolSets they don’t use which is essentially providing Profile with several different appearances. I really hope that makes sense. whew!
