Public Folders and Shared Information . . .
Posted on 2000-05-17
Okay, I have a group of people who actually fully share information in spreadsheets. If I am using Novell, that works well: we can either set up the spreadsheet to allow users to edit rows without impacting each other or Novell keeps the users from overwriting each others work.
We want the same functionality in a public folder. The problem is, the way our folders are set up, opening a file dumps a copy of it to the \temp directory, allowing users to overwrite each others' changes when they resave their documents to the same posting.
Is there a way that 1) two people can edit the same spreadsheet in Outlook, or 2) Outlook can prevent overwriting of files in the same way Novell does? Thanks.
