I have a basic question about Sharepoint. We have 2010..and a very very very simple site with just a few excel documents on it. We have about a 2-3 people who have the rights to edit and a few others who can just view.
Bottom line is this- we dont want to have to do the whole checkout/download/edit/upload/checkin process when we need to edit one of these documents. There is very little risk that any editing would be happening at the same time between those 2-3 users. Also- on the excel docs, we do have the 'allow changes by more than one user at the same time' check box checked on the Review Tab > Share Workbook setting in Excel.
Is the checkout/download/edit/upload/checkin process a mandatory thing? We fully understand the need for it in certain cases, just not something as simple as ours.
Please help me find a way to simplify this,,, I have a project team frustrated and we have been told we must use this sharepoint site for this activity.
Thanks! - Jacob
