Understanding Profiles

Profiles consist of both User Settings and Application data.  Application Data consists of databases such as songs and backgrounds, along with videos, images, feeds and DVD clips.  User Settings consist of settings like font size, color and transition settings.  It also contains information about the EasyWorship window size and location.  Settings like the output monitor setting are global settings that will affect all users and are not part of the profile settings. Profiles combines the ability of allowing EasyWorship to store application data in different locations with the ability to have multiple sets of user settings for that application data.

Profiles is replacing the old Set Network Folder option.  The profile data can be stored on the local hard drive, on a server or shared network folder.  EasyWorship will create a Default profile in the following location. Common DocumentsSoftouchEasyWorship.

Common Documents can be located in different locations depending on your Operating system.  For Windows XP it will be in My ComputerShared Documents  for Windows Vista it will be located in ComputerPublicPublic Documents.

Possible Configurations of Profiles:


1. Use the same set of application data as another profile but different user settings.

2. Use a different set of application data with the same user settings as another profile.

3. Use a different set of application data and a different set of user settings.


EasyWorship also allows for easy hot swapping between profiles.  This means that EasyWorship does not have to be closed when switching from one profile to another.
