One of the features end-users always use, is the co-authoring of Office documents mainly excel sheet, where they open the excel sheet inside the browser, and 2 or more users can edit the document at the same time. but i am not sure if we can still have the co-authoring capabilities, in those cases:-
- if 2 users edit the excel sheet using their desktop excel applications?
- one user edit the excel sheet using the browser while the other edit the document using the desktop app?
Now i tested the above 2 scenarios, and they did not work out-of-the-box, as when i try to edit the document using the second user, i will get the document as read-only and if i try to edit it, i will get an error message that the docuemnt is locked by the first user. so can i say that co-authoring for the documents inside sharepoint will only work if all users edit the excel sheet using the browsers?
