Editing Shared Documents in Dropbox - how do I know when someone else is in the document?

Editing Shared Documents in Dropbox - how do I know when someone else is in the document?

Hi All,

My team shares Word, Powerpoint and Excel documents in Dropobx and we all need to be able to access, view and edit the documents. How do I know if someone else is currently in/editing a document before I start making changes? We've lost work because we can't tell when someone is already editing.

Thanks in advnace for any guidance.
