Sharing editable files and folders and keeping the latest version

Sharing editable files and folders and keeping the latest version

New member | Level 2

I have a sole account, free version of DB and am building a Free Mind mind map to tell the story of my friend who was abused since infancy. Using a Windows laptop.
We want to be able to edit the .mm file and pass it back and forth, with the most recent saved version available.
Do I need Business or Family to do this for the file to be updated when shared?
At the moment, I only know how to save it to my DB.
If the other side edits it and I go look, I just have my saved version without their changes.
In my File Explorer there is no drop down share option. All the vids and Help I search give options I don't have and don't work.
Surprising given how long DB has been around.
In the real world, when I pull a file from a folder in a cabinet, add to it and put it back, my changes are there for the next person.
And theirs are plain to see for me when I come back.
I'm surprised I can't sort that basic function of a filing system.
What am I missing please?
Thanks in advance.

Put the file in a shared folder and invite the other person to it. That's all you need to do.
