Bid adieu to the conventional document sharing methods and associated overhead costs. Co-authoring functionality is here. SharePoint offers excellent co-authoring capabilities thus making it possible for multiple users to work on a document without interfering with each other's changes. They can access the document at any time from anywhere using any device.
Epitomizing "Wisdom of the Crowds", the results of co-authoring are way better than what a single individual can achieve. Co-authoring comes with plethora of benefits not just in terms of quality and quantity of work but also reduction in time and cost. It plays a great role in promoting collaboration and social interaction.
In SharePoint Online, co-authoring is enabled by default.
Co-authoring Word documents
Co-authoring works bit differently in Word Online and native Word Application. But the good news is that it works! All thanks to the co-authoring feature, when multiple users work on the same document, they get to see each other's presence and changes they are making.
