Avidnote has been used by research groups around the world.
If you buy a group license, you will get a shared group account + individual accounts for the number of purchased licenses.
The shared group account is given in addition to the individual licenses. A group account functions like a normal Avidnote account, but it can be used by several users. This is to facilitate work for research groups that wish to have a separate account where they can share their research notes.
Yes, several users can login and work at the same time with the Avidnote team account. Please note! Any changes you make inside the PDF viewer (e.g. highlighting text in the PDF, using the post-it notes, or drawing notes etc) are shown in real-time or close to real-time across different user sessions whereas the changes you make in the text editor are not shown in real-time for users who are working on the same PDF at the same time.
This means that you will need to be careful if two users are writing in the text editor at the same time for the same PDF, as the system will simply save the latest edit instead of combining both edits. We are working on improving this till the next update by introducing a real-time view showing the different users who are working inside the text editor, allowing for the system to save both edits together.
