Collaborating on a Word Document

Working with other people on a Word document is one of the most common collaborative tasks in business. Whether it’s adding your two cents’ worth with a comment, editing text with tracking activated, or parceling out subdocuments for others to create, Word has a powerful suite of collaboration tools, which I describe in this section.

Inserting Comments

The most basic collaborative tasks are to critique existing text or make suggestions for new text. In Word, these tasks fall under the rubric of comments, and Word implements them as a kind of electronic version of sticky notes. That is, a comment doesn’t change the original text, and when you display the comment, it appears “above” the text in a balloon (with, appropriately, a yellow background reminiscent of the original sticky notes).
