Re: Sharing On Web Guidance
After looking into SharePoints, I have some concerns.
How different is SharePoint to use than MS Access? Would I need to learn an entirely new software in order to transfer my database to it? I'm asking this because, to be honest, my job isn't IT. My actual job at the zoo is as an environmental educator (who happens to know computers), and I can only invest a few hours (about 10-20 hours) into expanding this database across the internet. I can't learn an entire new program in that time, and we don't have the money to hire someone to do this for us.
From what I learned about SharePoint, I would need to invest a LOT more time into programming it myself (especially since this is a very intricate database).
As an alternative, is it possible to set up a VPN or use a remote desktop service such as TeamViewer to have a secure, backdoor access to the MS Access database on the office network from the ticket booth network?
I know that this isn't best practice, and I know that it wouldn't work over smartphones or tablets, but is this possible and what are the concerns if we did it that way?
