Word 2010-Collaborative Tools

About the Class:

This workshop lasts 2 hours.

Intended for anyone who is comfortable using Word and has a need to collaborate with others in writing or editing a Word document. This workshop introduces Word’s collaborative writing features that can be particularly useful when working with multiple authors, but can also be used by a single author. With these features, multiple people can review a document and make changes or suggestions without actually altering the original text. It also introduces how to protect documents from undesired changes.

  • View, add, edit, and delete comments

  • Compare drafts of a document
  • Protect a document from undesired changes
  • Combine multiple copies of an edited document
