What software and process do you use for collaborative documentation review?



Currently we are looking into using SharePoint as a repository for documents set for review. We would publish a .pdf of the document and use Adobe Acrobat Pro for comments and markup.



One of our reviewers commented that Acrobat "sticky notes" can be difficult to use when a reviewer wants to submit large amounts of data for inclusion in a document. Some formatting can be difficult to convey also. This reviewer also commented on how they liked Word commenting because you could get a fnal copy view that is much easier to read than Acrobat's comments list and markup symbols.



I am charged with coming up with a new process. What do you do?



Thanks,



Missy
