How Simul helps

Simul makes it easier to collaborate on Microsoft Word documents. Here’s how it might work in a real-life situation.

edit icon

You create a Word Doc and write the first draft

upload icon

You upload the finished first draft to Simul

Simul automatically assigns Version 0.0.1 to your document

Version 1 Microsoft Word
add members

You invite your colleague James to collaborate on the document

edit icon

James opens the latest version in 1 click, and makes some changes

Simul automatically creates Version 0.0.2 and shows you the changes James made, even if Track Changes wasn’t turned on.

Version Control Collaboration
add members

You and James continue collaborating on the document, and you actually both open it and make changes at the same time

Simul automatically recognises when multiple people are editing the document at the same time, and saves each person’s changes in a separate branch so that nobodys work gets overridden

Working Simultaneously Word

You can then merge these branches in just 1 click, and each author’s changes are marked up as tracked changes in Word, allowing you to easily identify the differences, accept or reject the changes, and fix any conflicts

In order to finish the document, you need some input from another colleague, Joel. However, Joel isn’t tech savvy and you don't want to invite him into Simul, so you need to share it with him via email instead.

Simul makes it easy to share the latest version with Joel, even if he isn’t in Simul. You simply download and email it (or you can export to cloud storage tools like Sharepoint & OneDrive and share it that way)

export word documents dropbox
add members

Joel receives the latest version of the document, adds the final section of content and sends it back.

Simul makes it easy to upload Joel’s changes as a new version even though he isn’t in Simul. You simply drag and drop the file into Simul. It then creates a new version, shows you what was changed and makes it easy to merge Joel’s edits in.

Tick Icon

You’ve now finished the document, and it’s time to publish it and share the final version with others

Publishing a document in Simul gives it a major version (1.0.0 rather than 0.0.1) and enables you to download as PDF, share via email or link, export to file services like Dropbox and more.

“Before Simul, we’d be emailing documents back and forth with filenames like ‘V.27 Final - Dallas Edits’. It was impossible to know what the latest version was, and we had no history of the document. Now that we have Simul, writing business & legal documents is so much easier ”
