Documents are integral part of work. Therefore, you can take them with you into the KanBo world. Every document which appears in a card, occurs in Board documents section too. 

All these files have a source at SharePoint Document Library which is generated during the Board creation. Every KanBo Board has its own Document Source.

Explore Board documents section

Open the Board documents section and see your files and folders.

1. Go to the Board menu by pressing three dots next to the Board's name.

2. Select Documents.

 NOTE  Only users with Document Sources role added can change the Document Source.

4. Save changes. This feature uses a native SharePoint document versioning functionality. 

Co-authoring simplifies collaboration by enabling multiple users to work productively on the same document without intruding on one another's work or locking one another out. This functionality works both in Word Online and Word in Browser.
