Can you let the reviewers make changes, and use the page history if you want to see what they did. Or is that going to be a mess where you work? Iâve been in both kinds of environments.

So I either had to take a screen shot of the comments, or compare page versions to see what changed, and/or refer to a series of notification emails to try to figure out what changed. Is there really no way to see people's comments on the page while in edit mode?
