Together with your EndNote Desktop license you are entitled to create an EndNote Online account. This account consists of your email address and a password. With this EndNote Online account you will be able to 'Sync' one of your libraries (your 'master' library) to the EndNote Online environment and to your EndNote for iPad. Please also see the 'Sharing libraries' section below.
Best practice to setup your EndNote Online account
This way your EndNote Desktop license will be correctly 'connected' with your EndNote Online account.
Decide which of your possible multiple libraries will be your 'master library' which you would like to Sync to your EndNote Online or to your EndNote for iPad.
Open the 'master library' in EndNote X7 desktop.
Create a 'compressed library backup via 'File > Compressed library'. This feature will create a 'zip' file of your EndNote library (extension will be .enlx). Put this .enlx file in a backup folder. This is for safety reasons. If needed you will be able to restore your library from this .enlx file, just by opening this file with your EndNote desktop.
Go to 'Edit - Preferences - Sync'.
Click 'Enable Sync'.
Click 'Sign up' and enter your email address and click 'Submit'.
Enter additional information and enter a password.
Do not check 'Automatically Sync' yet untill you are familiar with the Sync feature.
Perform your first sync manually via 'Tools > Sync'. Go to https://www.myendnoteweb.com and login with your EndNote Online account credentials to see the Online (synced) version of your library.
Download and install your EndNote for iPad version from the Apple App store and enter your EndNote Online credentals to Sync your library to your iPad.
If you have ever synced another library in the past, the system will warn you that the library you are trying to Sync is different than the one used before. Please do not proceed before making a decent backup of your current 'master' library.
Since EndNote X7.2.1 there are four different options to share your library.
A. Share your 'master' 'Sync' assigned library accross your own devices (EndNote desktop, Online, iPad).
Please see above at the section 'EndNote Desktop, Online and iPad®'.
B. Share your 'master' and 'Sync' assigned library with 14 other colleagues.
Your colleagues should create an EndNote Online account first. See above 'EndNote Desktop, Online and iPad®' or via https://www.myendnoteweb.com.
After you have setup your own EndNote Online account and you have assigned your 'master' library for syncing and you have synced once (f.i. via 'Tools > Sync'), you may share this specific library via 'File > Share'.
Enter the email address (EndNote Online account) of your colleague and click 'Invite'.
Your colleague will receive an email and will need to confirm and login once with his/her EndNote Online account.
After confirming and loging in, your colleague opens the 'shared' library via 'File > Open Shared Library'. Your colleagues will have 'read-write' access to the library you shared with them.
You may unshare anyone from sharing via the 'File > Share' screen.
On their turn, your colleagues will be able to setup their own 'master' sync library and share their own library with other colleagues.
Links to custom Connection files, Styles, Import filters and Term lists are available at the Downloads page.
