Hi All,

I basically want to be able to share some word documents with various people so that they can edit them and track changes. I have tried loads of online solutions but haven't found something that works. The ideal would be some kind of online folder that people could map as a network drive and then open the file from this network drive, edit it in track changes, and then save it so that the next person could edit it. Does this make sense? I also need this to work easily as I am sharing with people who are not totally techy!

Any ideas? Help!

Have you tried Google Docs? I've found it to be quite useful for this sort of thing (although Sharepoint is a great suggestion as well).

Hi Everyone,
Thanks for all of your suggestions. The Dropbox ones works great! It does exactly what I need - and for free.

Thanks again!
