I am trying to implement co-authoring for a SharePoint wiki library.

I have configured versioning and the other prerequisites are met as stated at https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff718249.aspx

My questions are:

  1. Is this possible OOB? If yes, how?
  2. In case it is not possible using SharePoint OOB features, how can we do it programmatically?

According to this site https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff718249(v=office.16).aspx, it is not possible OOT.

Office provides co-authoring functionality for Word, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Visio. If you are using SharePoint Online or have SharePoint Server 2013 configured to use Office Web Apps Server, users can also co-author documents in Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and OneNote Web Apps.

If you really want to implement that you need to use event receiver that will capture event itemupdating and combine changes made from user. Creating Simple Event Receiver in SharePoint 2013

  • Thanks for your help Ariwi! Any article relevant to implementing this using event receiver would be much appreciated :)
