Co-authoring on SharePoint 2013


Overview:  Co-authoring has been around awhile and I haven't paid it any attention in a long time.  The idea is multiple authors can edit the same document at the same time.  

Notes
  1. Word and PowerPoint use to be the only supported files for co-authoring.  SharEPoint 2013 supports co-authoring in word 2013, PowerPoint, OneNote and visio 2013 as of 20April 2016.  
  2. Excel does not provide co-authoring unless you use Office Web Apps or excel services.  More info
