Because time stamps are a default setting, Microsoft effectively requires all co-authors, editors, and translators to punch a time card as they co-write, edit, or translate, with no ability to opt out of "time stamps" but at the same time opt in to "authorship." That raises privacy issues, which Microsoft should consider more thoroughly.
Removal of time stamps in revisions and comments can currently be achieved by using the Document Inspector > Document Properties and Personal Information. However, this process also removes author names; many authors, editors, and translators wish to retain their name in the document. The request is thus to separate the option to remove time stamps from the option to remove author names. As I have noted in my request, this feature could be locked by the document creator. Given feedback in the comments, it could also be included as an option upon completion of the co-authoring/editing/translating.Theresa Truax-Gischler shared this idea ·
