It's possible to give users rights to edit a document without rendering them as permanent edits. It's called Suggested Edits. In this video, staff author Jess Stratton shows users how to put a document into Suggested Edit mode, and how to give users comment permissions to make their own suggestions.
- [Instructor] If you'd like to work on a document…without making those changes be permanent,…you can use something called Suggested Edit Mode.…This is going to make your changes…as suggested changes and not permanent changes.…Once you've suggested an edit,…the owner of the document can go in…and accept or reject that edit.…You can also allow other people to make suggestions.…This is great if you want to get their input,…but not have them making actual changes to the document.…To suggest an edit, on the right-hand side,…you can see that the document is currently in Editing mode.…
Click the drop-down menu,…and turn it into Suggesting mode.…Now any edit that I make to the document,…and I can edit it just like I could normally,…will become a Suggestion instead of an actual Edit.…It has to be approved…to make a final change to the document.…Let's see this in action.…If I want to make a change, I can make my changes normal.…I'm going to make this E lower case.…
You'll notice that it's not written permanently…into the document yet.…
