improved commenting system in Microsoft Words



 Jun 05 2023

As someone that collaborates with many people on documents in Word, it would be great to have some additions to the commenting system in Microsoft Word.  For one, it would be nice to be able to set comments as the commenter based on the importance on a scale of minor to very.  Another addition would be to add tags to the comments.  For example, '#flow' could be used to tag comments that refer to improving the flow of the document or '#citations' for comments referring to references.  The tags could come from a set list but also the ability of the commenter to add their own tag.  Lastly, there should be a way for the user to sort or filter the comments based on the tags and or importance.  As it is now, the comments can become a giant mess of text, and it's difficult to move through them outside of deleting or resolving them.
