Collaborative Editing

(Zach) #1

Is there a way me and an employee or friend can edit the same document? It would be nice to be able to edit it at the same time, but I understand if that’s not possible. The document and resources would preferably be hosted in the cloud (Dropbox, iCloud, Box, Google Drive, etc) although a local server may also work.

There is not a mechanism to edit simultaneously or attribute edits to a specific person. You can host documents on shared/network folders, but you’ll need to make sure both users aren’t editing at the same time otherwise changes will overwrite each other (and potentially lead to corruption).

Hype was designed as a desktop application manipulating files, so it is a bit “old school” in that regard :smile:. I do think collaboration would be a huge feature - in both scope to implement and awesome possibilities for users.
