Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Co-authoring in SharePoint, part of SharePoint 2013 Essential Training.
Coauthoring is a really great collaborative feature of SharePoint.…And with Coauthoring, I can be editing a document and somebody else can jump right…in and join me. The way SharePoint handles this is it…locks paragraphs or small sections of the document so we can't accidently overwrite…each other's changes. Coauthoring also assumes that when I…opened this document, I never checked it out.…Because when a document's checked out, it can have only one person working on it.…But here I am in the Using the Timesheet information document in Microsoft Word,…and I'm going to make some changes. While I'm editing though, somebody else…could join me. So, I'm just adding some language here.…
I don't have tracking on, I could have. But here I am all reporting employees to…the appropriate manager or managers. Notice something just happened here.…It's a subtle thing. But down here on the Status Bar, there's…a little number 2 and two people. And it says Mark Lesie is also editing…this document. I can click the Status Bar to see all the authors.…
