How to Co-author Workbooks in Excel

You can work on a file in Excel at the same time as others by using Office's Co-author feature.

Simultaneously Edit

Make sure the file is saved to an online location like SharePoint or OneDrive, and that you’ve shared it with people who need to make edits.

  1. Click a user’s picture or initials in the ribbon to see what they are editing.
    • Cells being edited by others appear with a colored border or shading.
    • Changes are automatically synced.
  2. Click the Save button to force a sync and display new changes.
