Chapter 12. Working with Others > Revision Tracking

Revision Tracking

Word's Revision Tracking feature makes it possible for multiple reviewers to edit a document without actually changing the document. Instead, each reviewer's markups are displayed in color in the document window. At the conclusion of the reviewing process, someone with final say over document contents reviews all of the edits and either accepts or rejects each of them. The end result is a final document that incorporates the accepted changes.

To turn revision tracking on or off

1.
Choose Tools > Track Changes > Highlight Changes (Figure 19).

Figure 19. Use commands on the Track Changes submenu to set up and use Word's revision tracking feature.


2.
In the Highlight Changes dialog box that appears (Figure 20), toggle check boxes to set up the revision tracking feature:

  • Track changes while editing enables the revision tracking feature. Turn on this check box to track changes. Turn off this check box to disable the revision tracking feature.

  • Highlight changes on screen displays revision marks in the document window.

  • Highlight changes in printed document displays revision marks in document printouts.

3.
Click OK.
