Force Track Changes to stay ON

For redline and review of a legal document that is handed off between parties, we can initiate the document editor with Track Changes “ON”, but we also want to force Track Changes to stay ON, that is, the toolbar item for Track Changes would be disabled or hidden. Reviewing the documentation, I could not see how to do this. Is it possible? If so, how? This is a make-or-break consideration for one of our customers.

Hi @jbecker,
You can open the editor in Review mode by combining permissions.

                    "permissions": {
                        "edit": false,
                        "review": true

Here you can find an example of this:</>-,Review,-DOCX

Hi Carl,
Thanks for the quick response, but that’s not what I was asking. Let me try to state the problem more clearly. We want to be able to hand off a document for editing to user “X” so that they can make changes (editing enabled), with track changes on by default so that all changes are tracked, but they must NOT be able to turn off track changes in the toolbar. If user “X” can turn off track changes then they could make untracked changes, and that is what we want to avoid. Track changes must stay on. Is it possible to do this?

Hi @jbecker,
You can click the ‘docx’ button at the Try Now page I linked earlier to see that this is exactly what this permission combination does. It allows opening the editor with forced Track Changes on without a possibility to disable it.

Okay, thanks, I’ll see what I can do with this.
