Collaborating online has never been easier

What is it?

A pad is an online collaborative text editor. The contributions of each user are indicated by a colour code, appear on the screen in real time and are recorded as they are typed.

How does it work?

  • Create a pad.
  • Start to write your text
  • and invite your collaborators.
  • Each participant is distinguished by a color
  • and can chat with the group.
  • If necessary, restore an old version from history
  • and when your work is done, export it.
