Collaboration features include three separate plugins that can be customized and used independently of one another with any CKEditor 5 build.

  • Collaborative editing – Allows for editing the same document by multiple users at the same time. It also shows the selection of other users and automatically solves all conflicts.
  • Collaborative comments – Makes it possible to add comments to any part of content in the editor.
  • Presence list – Makes it possible to view the list of users currently editing the content in the editor.

All of the above features are fully adjustable. This makes implementing real-time collaborative editing within your application a highly customizable out-of-the-box experience.

The collaboration feature needs a cloud service to synchronize content between the clients, so first you need to sign up to the Collaboration service powered by CKEditor Cloud Services. Refer to Collaboration - Quick Start for more details.
