Expert advice for iCloud
Collaborate on Pages documents
Pages’ collaboration and commenting features are very good and very useful, but they haven’t been much cop if you’re working with people who don’t have the app, or who don’t have a Mac. That can be a problem, because commenting and editing plays a key role in many teams; several people might need to look over a press release, contribute to a newsletter, or review a document to ensure it isn’t going to land anyone in legal hot water. We can’t be alone in keeping a copy of Word handy for documents that require other people’s input.
Things have changed, however. Recent improvements to the iCloud version of Pages enable you not just to share documents with people who don’t have Apple hardware, but to collaborate with them too.
In this tutorial we’ll explore two kinds of collaboration. First, we’ll discover how to share documents with others over iCloud, how to enable commenting, and how those comments look on your Mac. Then we’ll discover the extra features that are available when the recipient also has Pages for Mac – as you’d expect, while collaboration works fine for non-Mac users, Apple keeps the best stuff on the Mac.
