Co authoring story

  1. 1. Office 2010 New Features<br />Co-Authoring<br />
  2. 2. Once upon a time…..<br />There were three co-workers: Jonathan, Sean and Zeyad. <br />Their boss told them they were responsible for creating a huge proposal for a new project. <br />Promotions were in store for all three if they could complete the task by the next day…or they would be fired if they failed.<br />What were they going to do?!<br />
  3. 3. Create one Word document and pass it around creating new version after new version until they ended up 27 separate documents on their way to a final product?<br />What if someone overwrote older edits?<br />What about the wasted time and energy?<br />What about keeps styles and formatting consistent?<br />What about slower team members holding up the formatting and editing of the final version?<br />
  4. 4. Luckily, Jonathan, Sean and Zeyad used Microsoft Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010! They simply created one Word template, stored it in SharePoint and use the awesome new co-authoring feature to create the proposal in record time earning new promotions and untold riches!<br />….and they lived happily ever after<br />
  5. 5. Here’s How They Did It:<br />Multiple authors enter same document at the same time<br />Requires SharePoint 2010 to work<br />Don’t worry, other authors’ changes do not move your cursor position on the screen <br />Sharing happens when you save<br />
  6. 6. Getting Updates<br />How do you get updates from what other authors are entering?<br />Edits are shared when the author saves<br />You know from the status bar in Word and the QAT save icon<br />
  7. 7. Who’s Doing What?<br />
  8. 8. Chaos? No Way!<br />Conflicting edits avoided by paragraph tagging of authors – Word keeps everyone’s presence in the document in sync-- in real-time -- automatically<br />
