Points to Note

• Tracked changes do not require any configuration other than the enable setting.
• When enabled changes apply to the entire question set.
• Question types include text, multi select, rich text, data source and file upload.
• ‘Pass through’ states, where contributions were not made do not appear in the Tracked Changes UI.
• Although comments and tracked changes (edits) merge as one in the UI, comments are enabled at the question level by the form’s designer.
