Microsoft Office 365 Co-Authoring is a technology, that allows you advanced collaboration with Microsoft Office files. One of the benefits is, that multiple users can work on an office file simultaneously.
KONNEKT can leverage Microsoft Office 365 Co-Authoring, when opening files from Windows File Explorer. In this case, KONNEKT just hands of the SharePoint URL of a file to the corresponding Microsoft 365 App (e.g. Microsoft Word). The App will then load the file directly from SharePoint.
This setting will affect files, that are opened from Windows File Explorer, only.
Other use-cases (e.g. KONNEKT file is opened from Office App) are not covered and Co-Authoring & Auto-Save will not work.
We recommend using Microsoft Office 365 Co-Authoring, since it has valuable benefits. This is why Co-Authoring is activated by default in KONNEKT.
However, if you do not want to use Co-Authoring and want to load office files through KONNEKT instead, you can use this setting and deactivate it.
Here are the possible settings:

Policy Name: Co-Authoring

There are several ways to apply the policy:
