    Hi!
    We have 16 iPads that is set up with Goodreader and Dropbox. We have synced two folders from Dropbox to the Goodreader Documentes-folder. This Works fine.

    When a user is editing a document on his iPad, the original file should not be overwritten when hitting the "sync-button". We want this on all 16 iPads. How can we solve this..?

    What is happening now is that when a user edits a document and hits "sync".. this document is uploaded to dropbox, and all other 15 users will see his edited document when the do sync. We want "download only-sync" on all 16 iPads on theese two dropbox-folders. The 16 users should also not be able to change this.

    I've never had a reason to do this, but it looks like you want to make sure you use the "Download Only" sync option when setting up syncing for those folder on the iPad.

    Your other option is to train your users to make local copie of the files before they start edting them. With 16 users, that approach is probably going to fail on a fairly regular basis.
