@Stephean Thanks for the screenshot. It definitely helps. The causes of your issue are:
The solution now is to standardize the drive label for every users who will be collaborating with each other. You can change drive label by going to Settings (from the Desktop App) -> Configure drive -> Enter new Drive label name. Please make sure that the label name is consistent across users. Let us know if this works!
@Stephean Since we haven't seen a response from someone else in the community yet, I've started asking around from our support and products teams. I'll respond back soon.
@Stephean, do you have more information on what types of files you are working with and what the application is? Different applications use different approaches to link files. Most applications do have a good way to link files based on relative paths, and in this way it should work both across users and across different operating systems (i.e. Windows and Mac).
The same thing is happeing to me. I am using indesign on a mac. Working from the desktop app. This has happened when I start a job at the office, then try to work from home and the links are missing. Nothing moved, no else touched the file. I have also had the problem when other people have created a file and another person in the office trys to work on the file. Not the same file, different files.
Any info wouldl be helpful.
From what I found, it seems like most file links in Indesign are absolute. If files are linked based on abosolute path, there might be issues when multiple users on different devices/OS try to access the same main file.
For most applications, the Egnyte Desktop App should still work in case of files that have references to other files. We have seen our customers worked with linked Office, Autocad files with no issues.
@JasonD: Did you use the same device to access your inDesign project? Did you have access to your linked files on Finder when you are at home?
@Stephean: Which OS does your team use? The "username@servername" piece might be issue if your links based off on absolute path. I assume your users all have access (on Egnyte) to the main file and linked files?
Yes are all working from the same operating system. I was using a different mac, but have access to all the same files from home. It doesn't happen on all projects, no rhyme or reason.
Please retry or contact our support team for more in-depth support. You can do that directly in the Desktop App. Please don't forget to attach logs as well!
It still will not work on our end. It would also not work within Adobe Illustrator today either. Attached are screen grabs of my links panel within Indesign. In one image I show the path for the unlinked image. In the other, I show the path for a link that is good. Everything within "Documents" is shared to our whole team. Let me know if this helps. If not, I will go through support.
