According to this video:
more than 1 person can open a word document and edit it at the same time.
When I test it, it doesn't work.
I can open it fine but my colleague can only open a read-only version.
We're both using Office 2010.
I found out that I'm part of OWNER group, while the other guy is just a MEMBER group.
I've checked the permission for MEMBER, it has "contribute" permission, which allow him to edit document library:
<label for="idspnidEditListItems">Edit Items - Edit items in lists, edit documents in document libraries, and customize Web Part Pages in document libraries. </label>
If I add him to OWNER group, he can work on it like the one on the video (link above).
Or, I can add individual user and assign DESIGNER role to it.
My question is: why he has to be in the OWNER group (or DESIGNER role)?
since we have many people working on the document but only 1 person to be included in the OWNER group, it's not a good idea to add everyone to OWNER
