Hello DaeShawn,

It is possible to do this but it is dangerous for your site. In effect you can have 2 different versions happening but only one can be saved and that will be the last saved version.

Just presume that you opened the site in the sitebuilder and have been extensively modifying the content or layout or anything. The second operator opens the site sometime later and before you have saved any changes. They in effect will open the previously saved version. Now they start making changes.

During this process you then go ahead and save your version. This won't contain any changes made by your collaborator. Subsequently your off-sider then goes ahead to Save their changes. There will be some obtuse warning flashed up but if they then push ahead, their version will be saved over-writing all of yours. Your changes will be lost.

Two collaborators working on the same site at the same time for this reason can cause major problems and they aren't recoverable. Users have come to grief previously doing this.
