Use Comments for Collaborative Work in Lehigh Office 365

Lehigh Office 365 allows for collaborative work by making it easy to share documents with others for editing. You can utilize the Comments feature to make it easier to get feedback from reviewers of a document. For this example, we will be using Word Online.
