Lock comments so they can only be edited by author of the comment
Please, please make it so that comments can no longer be edited by another person, students are able to revise comments made by their teacher. This is not good for school or business because a screen shot could easily implicate someone for wrong-doing. The edited comment shows the original author and no indication that there was a new person editing that comment. Also the comment history is not available to view to track any of the changed made to a comment box. Please fix this so we are able to continue using collaborative documents. This is a deal breaker.

On Word documents shared on Team, while openning the doc. with the application Word, we shoudn't be able to modify the comments let by others but only our own comments.
And it is a real non sense to be able to edit other people comments ! This feature is not possible in Word online and it should be the same in Word Desktop !
Well it is still possible to edit others comments!

Wanting to let you know that it is no longer possible to edit comments made by others in Word for the Web; the "edit" option is now only available to you on comments that you authored yourself.
We're also working on making this change in the latest versions of Word Desktop, so stay tuned :)
Please try this out and let us know if you have any additional feedback.
Thank you for sharing your asks on User Voice -- it's your feedback that makes it possible for us to prioritize the changes that matter most to our users.
This needs more votes.
i am groot ! =im with you its pretty true im a student though
This is extremely important. Only the author of the comment should be able to edit a comment. As a school district we would like to use the commenting feature when providing feedback to students. Unfortunately, other students can edit the teacher's comments, which does not work for our staff.
Why is this even possible? It just doesn’t make sense to allow someone to edit another persons comment. Please fix this. Our district can’t use your product otherwise.
