This paper discusses three scenarios of Cornell University research teams collaboratively using ATLAS.ti on a shared computing environment. The first scenario involves a Project Administrator (PA) creating a master team HU and a team library on a shared folder. The two other scenarios discuss the pitfalls of not correctly managing team project files. We describe each scenario and offer step-by-step instructions and solutions. All three scenarios described in this paper have team/my libraries located on a shared folder and used same PD-same code stock strategy when merging HUs. We also discuss the particulars of our shared computing environment, our general and team-specific recommendations as to how each team should manage their files, and other use cases concerning ATLAS.ti that came to our Helpdesk.
