I. Creating Proxy Folder on Apollo Cloud for Collaboritive Use

1. Open the Apollo Cloud Application.
2. Create a folder on the Apollo with the naming convention of your choice.
2A. The folder can be created by the Administrator of the Apollo or any of the Apollo Members that are registered on the device.
3. In this example, the folder Proxies will be created using one of the member's accounts (EDITOR1).

4. Once you've created the folder, you should share this folder with the members that need to access this media.
4A. Right click on the folder that you created and click Info.

4B. Provide the desired members Read and Write Permissions.
4C. If your users only require Read Access, then set the Permission to Read.

5. Click Done once you've established Permissions for your Apollo Members.

5. Verify that your sync folder was created in the local path that you selected in step 4.

6. An editor can transcode/copy a proxy media file from their high-resolution file from their Pegasus to their local Apollo sync folder; so that authorized Apollo Members can review and comment on this content.
