We're working on a group project, but can't seem to share the sandbox in real time. Is there a way to do this?

Two people cannot edit the same page at the same time. If they try an "edit conflict" is likely to occur. It happens something like this:

  • Person 1 clicks edit and starts making changes to a page
  • Person 2 then clicks edit before person 1 has saved. They start making changes to the original page (because person 1's changes haven't been saved)
  • Person 1 then clicks save. The current version of the page now includes their changes
  • Person 2 then clicks save. The software tries to save the changes they have made to the current version of the page. The problem is that the "current" version is now the one saved by person 1. It no longer is the one that person 2 started editing.
  • An edit conflict arises because the software can't reconcile the differences.

Clicking "attempt to resolve the edit conflict" will sometimes save person 2's additions.

Instead, you should try to work together when possible, or should coordinate your editing times. Editing specific sub-sections instead of an entire page will also help avoid edit conflicts.
