Allow autosave/co-authoring for password protected workbooks
When using co-authoring with Autosave in latest Excel desktop client, it fails if the workbook is password protected. Allow multiple users to edit a password protected workbook.
Thank you for taking the time to suggest and vote for this feature. We do not have plans to support coauthoring in password protected notebooks, but we are working to support coauthoring with protected documents in desktop clients.

Please also support the Protect Workbook feature as well for co-authoring/saving files on SharePoint

Due to high sensitive information we are required to password protect all our documents. I am opening and closing all day and this error message is a real issue now.

Due to EU data protection regulations, I am obliged to password protect my shared workbook, but the fact a password is used can cause an "UPLOAD FAILED" error message when changes are made and you try to save
