collaborative editing

Collaborative editing is a process of writing and editing documents or projects by more than one person. Collaborative editing software tools like Firepad and Textflow as well as services like Google Docs facilitate collaborativelyediting individual computer files by multiple users.

Business Benefits of Collaborative Editing

Collaborative editing can be performed in real-time or in non-real-time. Real-time collaborative editing (RTCE) tools enable multiple users to edit the same file simultaneously (with merging and conflict prevention and resolution for protecting edits), whereas non-real-time tools prevent two or more users from editing a file at the same time.
