Does Confluence allow multi edit on a document(e.g. excel) and merge the changes into one version?


Am looking to see if Confluence allows multi edit(i.e multiple ppl editing the document at the same time) on a document(e.g. excel) and when saved, merges all the changes into one version.

Else, does it has an option to checkout the document and checkin or similar to this.

Currently, I see when a document is edited by multiple ppl it creates multiple versions when saved(without merging the changes into one).

Hi Murali,

With the Collaborative editing, when multiple users are editing the page and the page is published, all of the changes made at that time are published. You can review more about this at our Collaborative editing documentation.

If it's not behaving in this way, can you let us know your current Confluence version?
