Accepting and Rejecting Changes

The ability to track changes in a document is very helpful when collaborating on documents. However, someone ultimately has to finalize the document, and in so doing they have to decide whether to accept or reject the changes that have been recommended and made.

There are four options available for accepting and rejecting changes:

  1. Accept / Reject and Move to Next. Use these to accept or reject a change and jump to the next change in the document.
  2. Accept / Reject. Use these to accept or reject just one change.
  3. Accept / Reject All Changes Shown. Use this option to accept or reject changes in groups based on the type of change or based on the reviewer.
  4. Accept / Reject All Changes in Document. Use this option to accept or reject all changes in the document.
