Our purpose is to help teams get in Sync by keeping everyone always up-to-date and on the same page. Which is why we’re thrilled to announce live editing on links. With this feature we’ve taken the link sharing you know and love and combined it with Microsoft’s Office 365 web editor.

To help you harness your team’s collective genius.

From me work to teamwork

Gone are the days of one-way link sharing. With Collaborative Links, everyone contributes their brilliance in real-time, and it all syncs back to you. This feature takes working better together to the next level, by making it easier to create better together. Heres how:

  • Boost cross-department workflows by getting everyone on the same page at the same time.
  • Enable easy client collabs with less moving parts.
  • Speed up your feedback loop on contracts and proposals.
  • Streamline project planning by delegating work.
  • Edit presentations and meeting notes on the spot.

Live editing for the win

Now, with the option to enable live editing to your shared links, multiple people can work on a file simultaneously. You’ll see what others are typing live as it happens, and they will see you too. All of this adds up to a magical team building experience for all.

Always secure
