Collaborate in realtime within XWiki Enterprise

Nov 20 2012

XWiki SAS is pleased to announce a new feature, awaited by its enterprise wiki users: collaboration in real time. It is now possible for several users to edit the same page simultaneously.

XWiki Enterprise allows employees in the same company or all actors that constitute its ecosystem to easily and effectively collaborate on projects. It allows them to create knowledge, to organize and capitalize it, to make it readily accessible and shareable.

Until now, collaboration within XWiki Enterprise had been asynchronous. Each user who had to edit a document, had to wait until other users finished their modifications. Now, using the new Realtime extension things are completely different. Multiple users can view and edit a document at the same time. They can observe all changes in real time, without reloading the page. The Realtime extension is actually an additional editing mode, on top of those that are already included in the product: Wysiwyg and wiki syntax.
