GoEdit vs. Edit with Companion App

See why GoEdit is way better

Some of our customers asked what the big difference between GoEdit and Atlassians Edit with App is. See yourself why GoEdit is simply the better choice for you and your customers:

Easy installation and updates

Thanks to our Windows MSI-Installer Package, you can rollout GoEdit easily via Group Policy Software Deployment on all computers company-wide. The Edit with App solely comes with an .exe-file so you either have to install the Edit with App manually on every computer or create your own install procedure.

Attachment locking function

GoEdit has a free built-in attachment locking function that protects your documents from concurrent editing. During your editing process nobody else can modify the document accidentally. It's automatically checked out and checked in when you save. The Edit with App doesn't protect files from concurrent editing. You additionally have to buy the quite pricy Arsenale Lockpoint Add-On to avoid the risk of users running in file update conflicts.

User friendly handling

GoEdit is integrated in every important attachment function of Confluence like attachment links, attachment tables, document previews, space attachment list and more. It uses popover-links to offer easy access. Whereby the Edit with App is only integrated at the document preview.

Certified and Terminal Server compatible

While the Edit with App does not work in terminal server environments, GoEdit supports terminal servers like Windows Remote Desktop Services and Citrix XenApp. As an enterprise grade application, GoEdit is also approved and certified by Microsoft SmartScreen, McAffee and Symantec Endpoint Protection.
