Tracking document changes

When multiple people are working on your document, it’s helpful to be able to see at a glance the changes that others have made. When you turn on Track Changes, Word displays all additional changes made after that point so that you can scan them easily. You can also use Lock Tracking so that tracking stays on. This ensures that no one is making changes in your document that you’re not seeing.
