Review mode in Word will help those participating to maintain their roles, that is, if the file is shared for review, the maximum permissions will be limited to that.
This means that reviewers will not be able to edit the document, but can leave comments and suggestions that the reviewers think may be worth considering and should be incorporated into the document, and then only the document owner and other collaborators can edit the document and approve the reviewer’s suggestions.
If you want to share a Word document in review mode, you need to click the share button first, and then click the share command in the menu. Finally, add the people who want to review the document, and finally select the “Can review” option, which is also available in “Additional Settings” in the “Link Settings” dialog.
Review mode also has limitations, for example, it only works with files stored in OneDrive or OneDrive for Business. This means that the feature does not work for files stored in a SharePoint library, because the file permission settings for that library take precedence, allowing users to edit the file even though it was shared with them in review mode.
Review mode is currently available for users of Word on the Web andWindowsAvailable to all Beta Channel, Current Channel (Preview), and Current Channel users of Word for Mac and Word for Mac.
