This thread is confusing me. Does RootsMagic actually have the capability to directly edit a Cloud-based database? Because, if not, then many of the observations and suggestions are mute as there is no form of Client - Server relationship.
My understanding is that RootsMagic (at least at present) can only edit a locally held database, which can potentially, be synched/shared between computers via a Cloud-based repository. Any form of 'database integrity protection' is therefore impossible to implement via software once you allow a third party the ability to download, edit and re-upload an amended copy of the database. In fact, it's equally impossible to protect the integrity of your database, other than through self discipline, if you personally edit it on two different devices, including using RootsMagicToGo.
Is there some feature I am missing?
