Hi Experts,

Thanks for your detailed Share review process.

When I clear my cookies or the first time I get the WorkSpace, I have to login in the office 365. That’s OK. But is there any methods that I can login in the office 365 with the user Name & Password in codes?

Waiting for your reply, Thanks.

Hi Mairead,

Shared reviews allow all the participants to see and comment on each other’s comments. If you only want to receive the comments, then I would suggestion using the email review instead.

Hello Lori,

Many thanks for the above steps, they are very helpful. I hope you can help me further. I want to send a document for shared review, but have it so that only I the host receive the comments. At the moment when I set up a shared review all involved can see each others comments once they click publish. Is there a way to do this?

All the best, Mairead

Hi Ahmed Naufal,

The problem is that when you run the Send for Shared Review command, it reader-enables the file for commenting but not filling in forms. You’ll need to manually reader-enable the document (to allow filling in forms) and then upload the file to SharePoint.
