My wife and I had separate v6 standalone vaults, but now I've got a family plan and intend to migrate her across. I've already migrated myself across into my "Private" vault, and renamed the default shared vault to "Shared - All Family". I understand the technical aspects of how to create vaults and assign permissions, what I am looking for is people's experience in how they set up the different vaults in terms of sharing permissions, family organizers, and what works for them. A few thoughts on what I think I want, but open to all ideas...
- The default shared vault is of limited use because there's almost nothing that needs to be shared between all family members including he kids, so better to use some combination of personal vaults and new shared vaults with controllable permissions.
- I should have both read and write permissions to my wife's vault (So that I can clean up entries and keep it tidy as she doesn't have the technical knowhow/willingness to do it herself)
- I should have both read and write permissions to the kids vaults (Because I know they'll mess something up and come to me to sort it out). But the kids should not be able to see each other's vaults
- Neither mine or my wife's vaults should be able to be seen by the kids.
- I'm not averse to my wife having read access to my vault, still debating that and I trust her ethically speaking, but I don't want write access because I fear she'll mess something up :-)
- I'm debating if I should make her a family organizer, my inclination is no for the above reason. If I decided for her to not have any access to my vault, then I need some easy way for her to have at least read access to my vault in the event of my death etc. We each have financial accounts in our own separate names that should be able to accessed in such a situation.
- The wife and kids shouldn't need to switch vaults at any time to access things THEY need for themself - too much room for error introduced by that
So how have people in similar situations set theirs up?
