Office Web Apps
Figure 13-38 Edit in a browser using Office Web Apps.
Office Web Apps will be presented in the browser, as shown in Figure 13-39, with the
familiar Word ribbon because we opened a Word document in this example. Because we shared
this document with another entity in the earlier example, and if that entity is also editing
the document, both entities can co-author the document at the same time. At the lower
right of the browser window, if there are multiple co-authors, the number of co-authors will
be shown. When expanded, the identities of the co-authors will be displayed.
INSIDE OUT Co-authoring in Word and Excel
For Word documents, co-authors can use either the rich Word application or the Word
Web App. Therefore, there is no need for all co-authors to be on one or the other to
coauthor. For Excel, co-authoring is possible only through the Excel Web App.
