Issues with cloud folder synchronization
We are a small band with 3 members. We all use Mobile Sheets Pro and like to share our songs. In general we all have exact the same data. Same database, same metadata and same songs. Most songs are written in chordpro but we have a few PDFs as well.

When it comes to synchronization we found many troubles with MobileSheets. We have tried all three Cloud providers (Google, Microsoft, Dropbox) and this is what we found:

If every band member creates its own account at the cloud provider, we tried to share some folder for synchronizing MobileSheet data. But that setup does not work. MobileSheets repors all kinds of errors when we try to do this. I think this has to do with access permissions with the shared folders. Only the owner of the folder can upload data. If the others try to upload data, then the files have some times a size of 0 bytes or MobileSheets shows error messages during upload. This is the same for all 3 cloud providers.

To come arround that problem, we now use only one account at dropbox. This is generally working but has a major drawback. MobileSheets needs to register the current device at dropbox. As this registration seems to be per device, it get invalid every time a different band member wants to synchronize. This means that we need to go to the settings and change the dropbox account again in order to get a new access key. Then we can start the synchronization. But this step must be repeated every time we want to synchronize. I think it would make sense to register not only the name "MobileSheets" at dropbox, but also the specific device. For example "MobileSheets on Samsung Tablet".
