Allocating user data into different folder

Jan 12, 2020 5:13PM PST

Hi all, sorry if i posted this in the wrong section.

For example, I have installed data collecting software into the PC of 10 users. These 10 users are grouped into A and B. Every week, these data will be pushed into the local server.

My question is: Will it be possible for respective group data to be transferred into specific folder / server? (I.E. Group A to Folder A, Group B to Folder B OR Group A to server 1, Group B to server 2)? How do i do it?

Many thanks to any answer and help!

Too specific.

While the answer is yes, this would be tasked to an IT staffer. If your company has no staff for such work then you can hire them as needed when needed.

The job you describe has too many details that would need to be known for me to write a step by step but the IT staffer (hired or on staff) would be there to ask more questions if need be.

Thank you for your reply.

Yup, i do think what i mentioned was too general. However, currently my boss asked me to try to figure it out. Hiring is currently out of the question..

Do you mind recommend me some guide online to try it out? I do have limited IT knowledge but i think it should be self educable.

Then take courses if need be.

I see Kees replied as well but your current skill level appears to not be enough to do the work. As the boss asked you to figure it out that means they will support you taking some courses in system design and programming if need be.

Re: transferring

You use three different words that apparently for you are synonyms: pushing, transferring, allocating. They aren't.

Pushing means someone or something on a PC pushes it to the server. If it's a person doing it, give the right instructions. If it's a (scheduled) process, configure it on the PC as you want. The possible issue here is what happens if the PC is not turned on, because the regular user is ill or on vacation or whatever. It would really be best if the software collecting the data already would put it on the server, than all you have to do is to do or schedule something that consolidates it once a week.

Transferring is neutral, it can be push (as above) or pull (somebody or something on the server gets it from the PC). Here the issue is that the PC should be turned on at the moment the transferring process runs.

Allocating doesn't make sense.
