#72 Edit Spreadsheets Simultaneously with Others using SharePoint 2010

August 03, 2011

Spreadsheets are an incredibly powerful tool to keep track of information, but they can be difficult to manage in a collaborative environment. Office Web Apps let you simultaneously edit the exact same Excel spreadsheet at the same time as another person. (How cool is that?) Now one person can enter data while another cleans up some pesky errors. And the best part? It works automatically!

To get started, just open any your Excel spreadsheets that you’ve uploaded to SharePoint and click Edit in Browser.

Learn more about the Excel Web App’s collaborative editing features on Microsoft’s Blog.
