Question I am taking care of a revision process that I want to have as an anonymous process. I have searched through Microsoft and learnt on how to eliminate the identification of the reviewer but it also eliminates the possibility to identify the changes. It is similar to the Accept key in the track changes tool.
The author of the text needs to be able to see the comments (not the document in its Final status)in order to act on them, but must not be able to access the identity of the person giving the comments, that is, the reviewer.
Could you please help. Thanks
I am using MSWord 2010
I do not think this is possible directly through MS Word. I do know of an option that will work but it requires all individuals giving comments to modify their options. To do so, go to: File > Options > General > Change User name > OK to something like "Reviewer 1, Reviewer 2, etc. ; Initials: R1, R2, etc." See attached for example.
This will allow you to know who each contributor is without anyone else knowing.
Hope this helps.

Meanwhile I've found a direct way of answering my question. It goes through file button to the tools "Prepare" and "inspector"
