Why Co-Author in Skype for Business?

Posted by on

Co-authoring is a great resource to collaborate with coworkers on a document. As of today, you can co-authoring via Office Online and Office client (documents needs to be in OneDrive for Business or SharePoint for this to work). Just like a typical Microsoft update, they will enable multiple ways to do the same thing. Here is another way to co-author – via Skype for Business. The big plus is you can have verbal communication when you co-author. 

As some people may already know co-authoring existed before it was created for Skype for Business, but now that you can use this feature it will give you incredible ways to work together. When you co-author in Skype for Business, you can visually see changes that are being made by others. A few things you can do is discuss changes, instead of typing out an email, and you can talk or IM with the co-authors in real time.

We have a training video that goes through the steps on how to co-author in Skype for Business. If you would like to learn more, please send a request to info@solartechnj.com.
