Let me clarify my question. Each user has a personal desktop in their office, some have laptops also that they carry around (me). We also have 12 work stations in the clinic area where our docs go to dictate reports in between seeing patients. We have set up a server for the voice files and enabled roaming on all of their personal desktops/laptops to see their own voice files on the server, but also set up roaming on the clinic computers so that when they go to clinic all they have to do is carry their microphone, plug it in and logon to dragon and pull up their voice files.
The problem is setting up all those clinic PC's with all those profiles. Currently we have 6 users and may expand that to as many as 30. Right now it appears each time we want to add a user to able to use any of those public PC's someone with admin privileges has to walk around and add the user. Is there a way to do that from a central location or save the information to a disk and just copy a file to the PC with all the user profiles?
There are a few possibilities available. The most common is Windows Active Directory. If your current office network administrator is not familiar with this option (which seems likely if they are walking around adding the user to each system), then you should find a qualified network administrator. There are many organizations with hundreds (or thousands) of computers where each user can log onto any PC. There are competing products that may serve your needs just as well. There may be a need to redo some of what has already been done before your situation gets out of control.
One caution: Be aware that "roaming users" is used as a term for allowing Windows users to sign on at any PC. That is NOT the same as the Dragon "roaming users."
