Question iMac to Mac Book Pro

I just purchased a new Mac Book Pro laptop. Iím expecting delivery on Monday, and it will replace my desktop iMac that serves as the host computer for my ReunionTouch program on my iPhone 7+.

Iím wondering, what I need to do to change the sharing status from my iMac to my laptop as the host?

Thank you for your time.

Are you keeping the iMac? If so, just install Reunion & Dropbox on the MBP. Use the family file from the Dropbox folder, or, as I do, put an alias in your dock, and use it from there.

I am not keeping the iMac. I sold it in favor of the more portable MacBook Pro.

If you use Migration Assistant, you should be all set.

Actually, the same applies. Just make sure sharing is turned on for Reunion Touch. Do all of this, and double check it, before you wipe the iMac.

I'd actually recommend not using Migration Assistant to transfer the files that are in Dropbox - there's a slight chance it could cause problems, such as conflicted copies.

The simplest solution is to download and install Dropbox on your new Mac, and let it sync all your Dropbox files to the new Mac. Once Dropbox finishes syncing, simply open the family file from Dropbox in Reunion 11 on the new Mac. No further steps are necessary.
