Fast User Switching Automation


#1

Hey Guys,

First post here, I normally post over at the MPU forum, but I love listening to automators!

I have a new Mac mini setup that I have four family members with individual accounts on the Mac Mini. We all have individual iCloud photo libraries and have our pictures download originals onto the Mac mini(well a hard drive connected to the mini) so we always have a hard copy of our pictures, videos etc.

My question is(and I don’t know if this is possible) do you have any ideas for how to make logins automatic. I.e user A is logged in from 10am -12pm and that way everything downloads, and then user A switches out and user B is logged in and the same thing happens, then user C etc.

Basically I am trying to automate the logins so that I don’t manually have to login for everyone to get pictures to download

Any and all help is appreciated, and if you have any different ideas I am open to everything!

If fast user switching is enabled and all accounts have been logged into and left running, then you might well be fine as is.
