Options/Key

Description

OneDriveOnPremHost

Enables multiple authors to simultaneously work on the same document. The key requires the OneDrive on-premise setup to be active. If you do not set the key, Co-Authoring uses the online OneDrive setup (Office 365).

Default value: Online OneDrive setup (Office 365)

Example:

<ws_option name="coauthoring" applyToAll="true">
<key name="OneDriveOnPremHost" value="http://onpremserverhost:1212"/>
</ws_option>

OpenInOnlineExcel

By default, the option to view or edit co-authored Excel documents locally is disabled as the document might be locked by the document owner for various reasons. For more information on accessing co-authored Excel documents, refer to Microsoft Documentation. You can use the OpenInExcelOnline option and set the value to "N" to open co-authored documents locally using the Microsoft Excel application in your system. If you do not set the key, the documents open in online mode.

Default value: Y (enabled)

Example:

<ws_option name="coauthoring" applyToAll="true">
<key name="OpenInOnlineExcel" value="Y"/>
</ws_option>


DeskSite and FileSite

For the Co-Authoring add-on for DeskSite and FileSite, create the OpenInOnlineExcel registry setting and set the value to 0 to open co-authored Excel documents locally.

Location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\interwoven\worksite\8.0\Coauthoring

or, for iManage Work 32-bit installation on 64-bit operating systems:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\Wow6432Node\interwoven\worksite\8.0\Coauthoring
