Hi all,

 

This was announced as a new feature for Office 365 ProPlus 1906...

 

CoAuthoring: Tired of being locked out of your document with macros?

Now your docm files on OneDrive for Business allow simultaneous editing by multiple authors.

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/officeupdates/monthly-channel-2019#version-1906-june-24

 

That said - we can't get it to work. Both are on 1906 (Monthly) and it doesn't work on older .docm or even newer ones. I have the .docm file in my OneDrive and shared, and open, but cannot co-author. Have you noticed the same?

Versions of OneDrive Sync Client are 19.103.0527.003 (colleague) and 19.123.0624.0002 (me).

 

Would be interested to see if anyone else has noticed the same...???
