Enter your username and password. This is NOT your www.TeamXStream login. This login information is available in your www.TeamXStream account on the TXS-Drive Desktop page. You can either type in the values, but we recommend that you copy & paste the values into the username and password fields.
The nickname is automatically "TeamXStream TXS-Drive" but you can change this is if you desire. If you are setting up multiple TXS-Drives, you would want to change the names to avoid conflict. For example, you could use "TeamXStream FHockey" and "TeamXStream WLAX" if you coach both teams.
You can pick a "drive letter" or leave it as the default.
Check "reconnect at login" to save yourself time down the road.
Click Save and then Connect.
Above you can see the TXS-Drive Desktop connecting to your account on TeamXStream. This should complete in a few seconds, at which point you'll see your team's TXS-Drive folder.
As you can see above, I have a Cube on the "Z" drive and I have put a file in the TXS-Drive. The file is called "myfile.txt" as an example.
You are ready to use your team's TXS-Drive. You can copy any regular file to the cube, or you can place them in Folders.
Don't forget, you can also access your TXS-Drive on the TeamXStream website by going to the TeamXStream menu and selecting TXS-Drive. All of your files and folders are accessible through the website, plus you can setup the security on your folders so your Players and Support Staff can access the files.
