Can we collaborate on documents with our team members simultaneously?

Lisa Davy I'm New Here Dec 04, 2017


I uploaded a powerpoint slide to confluence in file list and shared it with the team.  If we are in the same document at the same time, the last person who saves will have their version saved for the latest documents.  I do see my changes saved in the earlier versions of the doc, but people can overlay other team members changes if we happen to be in the doc at the same time. Is there a solution to this in confluence?

Hi Lisa,

The recent versions of Confluence itself has collaboration, i.e. you can collaborate on a single page in Confluence at the same time.

However, collaborating on a document using Office Connector is not possible. We do have a feature request for this:

Thanks for confirming. I had trouble voting for the CONFSERVER-52135, it looked like it was view only.


You'll need to login first, and then click Vote for this issue in the top right. I tested this with a non-Atlassian account and I can confirm it should work for regular users, so please try it and let me know if you have any trouble.
