How can we improve Excel Online? Vote for an existing idea or share a new one.

"lock-out" feature

Good Morning –

I have an excel document that several people access online. When someone opens it locally, it locks everyone out, as you know. I experience this problem periodically; If I open it locally, but then save and close out, it continues to give me the error message when I try to re-open online, even though the local version has been closed. Since Excel Online has some limitations, it is necessary to open the local version at times, but it really jams us up by locking us out. How can I fix this?

Thanks,
Emily
