This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom Classic and CC: Allow Catalog to be stored on a networked drive.

I can see that this type of request has been floating out here for about 6+ years already.  Ideally I'd like for Lightroom catalog to be simultaneously shared and multi-user, however as a developer I understand the complications of that sort of implementation.

Alternatively, I would just like to be able to store a Lightroom catalog on a network share that allows only one user at a time to access it.  This could be implemented through a locking mechanism that allows only one instance of LR to access the catalog at a time.

This would be a vast improvement over the current implementation and would likely satisfy many, many of the requests for some sort of a shared catalog concept.
