Question regarding Co-editing

Postby lenmar » Wed Nov 08, 2017 2:12 pm

Hello,

we just ran into some percieved trouble with the co-editing feature so we had some questions what the inteded function is and what may be a bug.

Setup: Only-Office Documentserver with connector app to latest nextcloud release.

1. Is it only possible to co-edit if you shared the document with the person you want to co-edit with (in nextcloud)?
2. Is "real" live-coediting only possible with .docx files (to see what the other person wrote the second they wrote it) and in .xlsx you have to press strg+s always to see what was edited?

Thanks for your answer Maxim.

I just have another follow-up Question, don't know if thats the right place to ask tho:

In nextcloud exists the feature of group-folders. All members of the group can now see the document but if they open it simultanily the coediting doesnt work in 90% of the cases. The document isn't explicit shared with each member of the group. Would the explicit sharing be the solution?

Hello lenmar!
How did you understand that the coediting mode did not work in 90% of the cases?
Did you get any message? Or you were able to view document only with no coediting mode?

All could open the document but no one was able to see the changes from the other persons in real time. Example:
Person A, B and C all open the same file at the same time. Person A writes something in a Spreadsheet, Person B and C are unable to see what was written until Person A closes the file and B and C reload it.

I will try out now if it fixes it with explicit sharin and not only a group folder.

Hello!
Please specify you use Document Server only or Enterprise Edition?
If you use Document Server only you should visit our API. In Enterprise Edition you can set Fast mode for coediting process.
