The Final Draft 11 Collaboration feature allows real time Collaboration on a script for any number of co-writers. All you need is an internet connection. 00:26 To host a Collaboration session open Final Draft and click the Collaboration button. Enter your name and select the script you'd like to share with your Collaborators. If the script you want to work on is already on the screen click OK to start the session or you can open an existing script or start a new one from the list of templates. 00:49 Click OK to start the session, you'll be given a session ID call email or text this ID to your Collaborators to invite them to the session they simply click the Collaboration button and go to the join tab. Here they enter their name and the session ID you gave them and click OK. You must allow them into the session and then they'll see what you as the host sees. Notice the color bar next to you and your Collaborator's names? This color will correspond to your blinking cursor in the document. 01:29 All participants in a session can edit the script at the same time. They can also write on different pages in the script at the same time. If you have a question or a note for your colleague during the writing session use the chat function if one or more the participants aren't seeing new edits the host can click refresh and the script will update on everyone's screen. 01:54 When you close the collaboration session everyone can save a copy of the file to their hard drive your computer and your colleagues computers are the only places where the work is saved. 02:06 Final Drafts Collaboration system doesn't store your content on a third party server.
