    @Greg Simonis: That's useful info--thank you. Very, very difficult to communicate those caveats to users, though. If both Excel Online and regular Excel disallow a user to do something unsupported--and provide a clear error message why they cannot--that would be fine. That has not been my experience, though. I've seen where people open up the same file in regular Excel, and suddenly the Excel Online folks are left wondering why it's acting weird. No error message of any kind initially; eventually they get an error message, but it is not a helpful message at all, and certainly doesn't point to the real issue.

    In addition to resolving those issues, the ability to kick someone out of a file is still necessary.

    @Dariusz: better yet, the "didn't upload correctly" scenario should not happen. Excel should prevent a user from making changes that won't sync. With many co-authors, the possibility of many changes, only some of which were sync'd or partially sync'd, is a nightmare scenario that can't easily be undone (when did the breakdown start?), not to mention the lost work. Track changes is useful in many other ways, but it should not be a glorified undo because co-authoring doesn't work.

    If you hover the mouse over the file in the doc library, I think it tells you who has it locked?

    It would be nice if there were other indicators, though.
