Nucleus allows users to store, share, and collaborate on project data and provides the unique ability to work synchronously across multiple applications. For this launchpad lab we’ll be utilizing a Nucleus Enterprise server. Follow the instructions below to connect to your shared Nucleus Enterprise server from the View. You can log in to this server from a local web browser as well, making it easy to share files and collaborate!
