When a document with co-authoring enabled is simultaneously edited, changes made by one co-author are available to other co-authors as updates. Each change is represented by a single CoAuthUpdate object. When a co-author saves their version of the document, changes made by other co-authors are merged into that co-author's version of the document. Prior to the time when the co-author saves a version of the document, changes made by other co-authors are available as updates.

For example, when two people are editing a document that initially contains a single paragraph with the text, "The brown fox." If the first co-author edits the sentence to read, "The quick brown fox jumps over the log" and then saves the document, the words "quick" and "over the log" are available to the second co-author as two updates to the document. These two updates are represented in the Microsoft Word 2010 object model as two CoAuthUpdate objects. When the second co-author saves the document, the updates from the first co-author are merged into the document.
