Collaborative editing

Keep in mind that if you Undo while there are multiple people working on the same document then this will just work for your individual edit changes, and you can Undo only until you hit someone else's edit. Otherwise - undoing another users' work could lead to major confusion. Imagine that you are writing some text and your colleague tries to undo his own image edit, which consequently removes parts of your text!  


An additional benefit of working in cloud based application is that Dropbox and Google Drive maintain older versions of your files which provides an easy way of viewing and reverting back to earlier versions, so it’s a safe, easy and storage-saving way of maintaining multiple versions of your documents. So if somehow you or one of your colleagues manage to accidentally delete someone else's crucial work - you can always get back to previous version of your files.
