Is there a benefit to storing the interface file on the client machine instead of hosting it on the server?

Hi FM community,

I am working on a new solution in FM 16. I will have a data file and an interface file. I was planning on hosting both files on FM server but I am wondering if there is any benefit (or downside) to storing the interface file on the individual client machines. The reason I am wondering this is because I want to give the client users the ability to store personalized settings and customizations. For example, I want them to store various user defaults, color and layout settings, searches, flag records, store some local data, and probably other stuff too.

 

I suppose I could host the interface on the server and store a local settings file locally, but then why not go all the way if there is a benefit.

 

Any thoughts on this?

 

Thanks.
