Document review and updating

Rated 3.82/5 based on 651 customer reviews

Microsoft Word’s “track changes” facility has improved considerably over the years and is a very useful markup tool, although I always feel somewhat politically conservative every time I “reject change”.

I never show mark-up from before the previously approved version though – that would get way too confusing.The document as a whole was never approved – rather, the acceptance criteria within it were approved individually by adding a date stamp against them.I like this lightweight approach to approval – it saves a lot of time and effort and speeds things up considerably.An alternative to version control is a living document.In a previous article I described a Functional Specification which resided on a shared drive and was continuously being updated during the life of the project.
