What is Review mode?

When you open a document that was shared with you for review, you are automatically placed in Review mode.
In Review mode, you won’t have full edit control but instead are allowed to add suggestions to the document in the form of comments or tracked changes. Document owners or other collaborators who have full edit permissions will then need to approve the incorporation of any suggested changes to the document.
What's new?
We have changed the UI for Review Mode in the Share Dialog to include this mode as a permission called 'Can Review' inside of the sharing permission dropdown.
From OneDrive, SharePoint or Word for the web, share a document for review by clicking the Share button, and then clicking the Share command in the menu.
Once you have the share dialog open, select the people that you want to share with review permissions, and then choose the 'Can review' option from the permissions dropdown. You can find this option available as well from the Link settings page.
