In SciNote you have a possibility to use MS Office Online documents, where you can add, view, and delete comments, as well as reply to comments from other reviewers.
You can also use Track Changes function in MS Office Online documents - you cannot see tracked changes in Word but they are still there.
Now, before uploading a Word file (under the protocol step or results) you need to turn on the Track Changes in opened Word file on your desktop (see the image below) and save the file as it is prior to uploading it into SciNote.
After this, when you open a document in Word that has tracked changes, they are preserved and any changes you make will also be tracked. You just won’t see them until you open the document in the Word desktop application.
You will know the Track Changes is on when you see it in the status bar at the bottom of Word Online (see the image below).
To learn more about how to use Track Changes function in MS Office Online watch our video tutorial.
To take advantage of Scinote integration with Microsoft Office you must have an active Microsoft Office account that has online editing rights. Read more about it here.
