Conflicted copies in Dropbox


Can anyone offer me any solutions on how to get around the conflicted copies when using dropbox? I suggested to my workmates to create a folder called 'in use' so that if someone begins working on a file they drag it into there so other members know not to use it.
This is a very basic solution and i am hoping someone has something a little more advanced to put in place.

I don't think there is a way to do that, I have heard about people either switching to google  apps or office 365 so multiple people can edit the same file at the same time.  What kind of files are you getting conflicts with?

Yeah thats what I suspected, I might look into google apps and office 365 We generally only work with excel when using dropbox.
