Is there a way to tie Recent documents to a network profile?

My boss is working on Visio documents from home and work and wants to know if he can see the documents he's worked on at home show up in Recent items on his work computer.  He is logging in and the files are on our network (Active Directory/Exchange) so I was wondering if it is possible to achieve this with Office products?

No. Recent documents (even on a network share) are recent to that computer. You would have to retrieve the Recent information from the home computer.

I would say "Not worth the effort"

I'm afraid it's not possible, it opens up the recently opened docs on that PC hes not accessing the same .exe (program) he would open have to open them on the same pc using the same office application

The fact its on your network only stores a copy of the file on there but in terms of recent docs it applies to each individual PC

Thanks for the replies!  I figured that it wasn't possible but wanted someone to backup my theory before I let the boss know.
