Good morning, 

 

My team is having issues with collaborating on a powerpoint together in MS Teams. When multiple members are in the same powerpoint document accessed through Teams, when one person's computer Auto-Saves, everyone else's powerpoint automatically reverts to a previous edition and they lose all their work and cannot recover it.

 

Does anyone know how we can overcome this? Thank you!

Need to make sure if that everyone using desktop version to try to coauthor is on the latest version of Pro-Plus. If anyone is using older office versions it could be causing issues with this.

@Chris Webb  Thank you, I'll check y teams versions and provide an update.

Not Teams, make sure people aren't opening in Desktop App and they are using older versions of Office trying to edit, that usually would be the issue here.
