Enhanced performance during the error recovery process
The capacity to cooperate via networks, with numerous contributors working from various places, either in real time or asynchronously, is becoming increasingly important as remote work becomes more commonplace.(Fix Mistakes In Word)
In the past, if you were coauthoring a document with another person and you ran into a mistake, you would be isolated from the other person until you fixed the problem. In certain instances, the coauthors were required to make a duplicate copy of the document, after which they had to manually assess what modifications had been overlooked in the most recent saved version.
The experience of recovering from errors has been enhanced, and as a result, modifications that were not saved prior to the occurrence of an error can now be retrieved and preserved as tracked changes. This enables you to go back to the live document and put the changes back immediately, or you may do it at a later time, all while assuring that there is no loss of data throughout the recovery process.
The workings of it
In the event that you experience a problem when collaborating on a document, the document will instantly refresh and reopen, and an error bar will appear on top of the document. You have not been disconnected from the live document at this time. Any modifications that were made to the document that were incompatible with one another were stored as tracked changes and assigned to Microsoft Word 2021.
The following are the actions that need to be taken to deal with this situation:
1. Click the button labelled “Review Changes” located in the error bar in order to examine the conflicting modifications as tracked changes.
2. On the Review tab, decide whether each tracked modification that is ascribed to “Microsoft Word” should be accepted or rejected.(Fix Mistakes In Word)
NOTE: Enabling the All Markup and Show Markup options (with “Microsoft Word” chosen as the reviewer) will make it much simpler to observe any recovered adjustments you may have made.
Please refer to this Microsoft Support page for further information on this experience and the other coauthoring mistakes that it addresses.
Office Insiders who are using Beta Channel Version 2208 (Build 15515.10000) or a later version will soon be able to take advantage of the enhanced error recovery experience.
