Improvements for Co-Editing in Desktop App for Windows Version 3.14.8


Desktop App for Win 3.14.8  Release Date: Mar 31, 2023

Improved Flow of Starting/Joining Collaboration Session

We improved the flow of opening MS Office documents in collaboration mode. From this version, after a user starts a new collaboration session or joins existing one on MS Word, MS Excel or MS Powerpoint files, the dedicated application will open directly - up to this point the dedicated application shutdown and then reopened the document. 

This new flow works only with the newest Microsoft integration

Issues Addressed

  • A fix for an issue with inherited read-only parameter for files copied from folder with viewer permission to other folder
  • Fix for a rare issue with random conflict copies created from the same system

Known Issues and Limitations

  • Co-editing is not supported with Smart Cache connection for versions of Smart Cache below 2.7.
  • If a user has an “ask” as a default co-editing setting, simultaneous opening of more than one MS Office document can result in an error.
  • When opening large Excel document in co-editing mode takes over 30 seconds, then the collaboration pop-up may appear for the second time.
  • Starting or joining a co-editing session in MS Office Online in the newest Microsoft integration is possible only through the context menu. A double-click will result in opening a document in MS desktop.
  • For updates on Windows 11 support and known limitations, refer to this article.

Upgrade to the latest version today.
