Track Changes Plus

Do you co-edit documents with others?

More and more, we’re creating and editing legal documents with other people. Setting aside the obvious people problems (differing opinions, etc.), there’s the problem of dealing with the technology:

  • How do the various editors indicate their changes and comments?
  • How do we keep track of the document’s history?
  • How do we make sure that the final document doesn’t contain any metadata that could be transmitted to an adverse party?

Track Changes Plus is a course on using Microsoft Word in document collaboration. It’s centered around the Review tab, which contains the Track Changes feature plus other collaborative editing tools you might not be aware of.

Online services like Lynda and Udemy are great for picking up new skills. But the courses I feature here at Legal Office Guru not only teach you these same skills but apply them directly to the law office/legal department context. You’ll see how to use these skills in documents like the ones you work with everyday.
