I'm hoping someone can alleviate my confusion.

I'm trying to find out if any Sharepoint versions offer something like Google Docs' live-editing capability. What I mean is: Two people can edit a single Word/Excel from two different workstations at the same time.

I seem to recall that this was possible in 2010, perhaps with an add-on, but I can't find it any longer.


In SharePoint 2010 , you can install Office Web Applications (marketing link or technical link), that gives you live editing that you are looking for.


I think the word client app also has the ability to support multiple users editing the same document simultaneously
