Disable co-authoring in one-drive

Copper Contributor

Hi Sharepoint experts,


I would like to ask your help if is it possible to disable co authoring in OneDrive. Only one user can edit the file at a time while the other can open it in read only view. 


Thank you for your inputs.

There is not a direct way, but there is a workaround that you could even automate: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/sharepoint/disable-co-authoring-at-document-library-level-spo...
Hi Juan!

I will try this one. Thank you.
Are you one drive expert as well? I have an inquiry regarding one drive implementation.

Thank you,

There is no way.

Right click OneDrive
Under Sync and Backup, expand the "Advanced Settings"
Toggle "File Collaboration" to off.
