Editing Simultaneously and Saving Changes
Figure 22-11 The message bar prompts you to save the file to update changes.
The Info tab of Backstage view also provides you with important information about the
status of the file, the co-authors currently working on the file, and any version information
you need to know. You can click Save to save your file changes and update the screen
display. If you are working with Office Communicator, you’ll be able to tell whether she is
available for contact by the colors displayed to the left of a co-author’s name. Green means
you can reach the co-author by clicking the contact information and choosing one of the
communication options; red means the co-author is busy; and yellow means the person is
away (see Figure 22-12).
