New Collaborative Editing for Amazon WorkDocs – Powered by Hancom Thinkfree Office Online
I’ve got some important news for Amazon WorkDocs users. As a result of our partnership with Hancom, you can now edit Microsoft Office documents in your browser without having to install any applications or connect with another web service. You can quickly create a document, share it with team members, and let them make changes and contribute to the finished product. Everyone can see changes in real-time as they work together, regardless of where they are located or what device they are using to access WorkDocs.
This feature is available at no extra charge and you can start using it as soon as your WorkDocs administrator enables it. Let’s take a tour!
I start by creating a document, spreadsheet, or presentation using the New menu. I’ll create a document:
I can create and edit my document from the comfort of my web browser:
Then I save and rename it (a default name is generated using the creation time as a starting point):
Next, I share it with my colleague Manoj so that he can take a look and make any desired edits:
I can see his edits in real-time:
And I can see all of the participants in the collaborative editing session:
WorkDocs creates a new revision after all of the participants have exited the editing session.
I can also create new spreadsheets and presentations and edit existing ones! Here’s a new spreadsheet:
And here’s an existing presentation (I opened one from 2008 just for fun):
This feature is available now in the US West (Oregon) Region and will become available in other regions in the next couple of weeks. It is available at no extra charge to all WorkDocs users.
