Share Your Experience: Take the 2024 Developer Survey

Where teams work together at one task, e.g. the same document or code, the piece of software used must be able handling that. Use this tag if that's a requirement to the software you're looking for.

Collaboration is working with each other to do a task and to achieve shared goals. This could be a document written by multiple authors simultaneously, or a software project with multiple developers involved. As multiple people will apply changes at the same time, these changes need to be coordinated – which is a very specific requirement for the software being used.

Example usages

  • : mostly used in development, when not only "merging changes" is important, but one also needs to access "older versions" and compare changes afterwards (e.g. to see where a bug might have been introduced). Can of course be used for other works (documents etc.) as well.
