  • Hello Himo,

    Unfortunately i don't think multiple checkout is possible as the main use of the check-out feature is to prevent other people from editing the document before you have finished with it. 

    If you are using Word then if it possible for multiple users to work on the same document at the same time, it will sync both sides and keep versions.

    For Excel and others there is no multi-editing feature until now.
