This feature is a game-changer, especially for remote or hybrid teams, as it fosters a more efficient and streamlined workflow.

Unleashing the Power of Modern Comments

Collaboration doesn’t stop at just co-authoring. Microsoft 365 also introduces a revamped commenting experience that puts you in the driver’s seat.

Keeping Track of Collaborators
