Microsoft Office 2007 includes a collaborative software program called Groove. Groove can host documents, including presentations, workbooks and others, created in Microsoft Office 2007 in a shared workspace to facilitate the collaborative editing of documents.

Groove can also be used in managing workspace sessions, including access control of the workspace. If you have used Google Docs and Spreadsheets (formerly Writely) you may already be familiar with the concept of working collaboratively on documents. To collaborate on one or more documents in Office 2007, a Workspace has to be created, and then those who are to work on it have to be invited. Any files shared on the workspace are automatically shared among all participants. The application also provides real-time messaging, including one-to-one as well as group messaging, as well as monitoring workspace activities with alerts, which are raised when pre-defined set of activities are detected. Groove also provides features for conflict resolution for conflicting edits. Schedules for a collaboration can also be decided by using a built-in shared calendar, which can also be used to keep track of the progress of a project. However, the calendar is not compatible with Microsoft Outlook.
