We have spreadsheet that resides in Sharepoint and needs to be updated daily by over 100 users.
Co Authoring works but there have several times where someone messes the spreadsheet up and we need to start from the last time it was saved properly.

Please take a try with it on your side and feel free reply if you need more help.
