Description dudson 2007-12-05 15:33:07 UTC
Wanting to have real-time collaboration (editing) of shared files

editing on the same file on the same time simultaneously!!

With Google Docs you can share files. 
And even edit them with multiple persons simultaneously.
Now that is a very desired thing for students (we are always with two to make a
report, see it comming folks)and also any other person who makes something in a
group. It happends all the time.

It would be incredible handy that: 
a shared file on a network or a file on a internet server can be edited by
several users simultaneously (first someone has to make a file of course and
that person will then be the administrator). This would be a huge time saver in
education, science, business and government!!! (remember time is money)

(There will also be needed security measures if you only want certain persons to
come on the server on the internet or a network where a whole classroom is
sitting on)A pasword that protects it from being written and that only persons
that you give that pasword to can edit the file looks something good. Mayby
there will be needed a system with accounts that log in or out but this is
something the devs(developers) have to look at what suits them best.

please don't set the "target milestone" yourself, in case of features this will

Is a defining point of this feature request, 

* _concurrent_ edition of a single OOo-native file by multiple users of OOo?

FYI, assuming relevance:

> Renaissance behaviour for multiple users performing concurrent edition offers a User Experience project introduction to Renaissance.
