Hi all,

 

How does co-authoring work with track changes? Can you see all changes that users have made over a period of time?

Hi @David Gorman 

 

If you do it through the desktop app I believe it should work as normal showing the changes that are made by the users.

 

I don't believe it works if you do it through Word Online as the online version doesn't have Track changes in it.

 

Version history will at least capture the revisions autosaved.

 

Cheers

Damien
