Onedrive Setup (everyone)
We'll use Onedrive for all research, literature survey and simulation results. Here is how to get started:

    2. Create a Folder with your name. Share it with
    3. Include Onedrive in your Windows Explorer. Onedrive Download Link, in case you need it.
    4. Now you should have the shared folder mapped inside your windows explorer. This may not work on ECN machines.

Guidelines: Please use the folder structure already present in the shared folder. Use this for research work including simulation setup files. However, do not save large results files >30 MB (e.g. HFSS result files, large ADS files) in this folder. Setup the simulation files directory to something local on the computer you are using.  

Q. How do I collaborate online ?
A. Use Onenote to keep track of Goals and Progress.  

    1. Please date and name each folder (see example) and keep your work. 
    2. Use the Onenote to find and keep track of Goals and Next Steps. Once you are done with next steps, check the checkbox and save the results in the folders. 
    3. Please save the design files and powerpoints but do not save the extremely large files (e.g. 500MB). Based on the results and progress Prof. Sen will add next steps to the Onenote.
