Office co-authoring



Hoping someone can help. If I open a spreadsheet from the finder, excel is unable to pickup that this file is from odrive and enable the collaboration and autosave features.

If I install the onedrive Sync agent and then open the same file from there Excel knows that this is a onedrive file and the collaboration features are enabled.

Is there a way to enable this with odrive, or is the onedrive sync agent the only way to achieve this?
Is this something that is on the cards for Drive?


Hi @terence,
I believe you are talking about “co-authoring” of Office documents. odrive doesn’t support this particular Office feature, at this time, but I have moved this post to the “feature requests” category so that our product team can track it.
