This week I was on site with a client discussing how to further leverage SharePoint in their business, and our conversation came around to how to better equip their field engineers and staff. Specifically, I shared about the document library Sync feature. One question came up regarding how SharePoint will reconcile changes if one employee modifies a file from their synchronized local copy, and another employee modifies the file directly from the Document Library.
It’s a typical question and one I thought I’d answer using a live demo. The video below illustrates how co-editing can work for both online and offline users. I hope you find it helpful.
(BTW: I’m going to try to start creating more of these kinds of Q&A videos, so if you have a suggestion for a question or explanation of a SharePoint feature, please comment on this post and share your idea.)
