co-authoring between editing word document content and editing word document property

john john 926 Reputation points

Inside our online document library, 2 users can edit the word document content at the same time using the co-authoring feature. but if someone is modifying a word document content and another user tried to modify the word document properties the user will get this error:-


so my question is if we can allow co-authoring between a user who is editing the word document content and another user who is editing the word document properties?

    Hi @john john

    It seems to be a by-design behavior.

    Co-authoring only applies to users co-editing document content. When a user is editing the content of a document, other users cannot change the document properties.

    Other users can only wait for the completion of the document modification.
