Remove Timestamp from "Track Changes" in Office 365 Word Mac

How does one remove the timestamp from one's Tracked Change or Comment in Office 365 for Mac?

Online searching produces results that refer back to PC/long-outdated versions of the software.

It is definitely not intuitive!  Any help out there...?


The option to Remove personal information from this file on save still is available in Word 2016. It simply was moved because it is a document-specific property, not a global Preference. You'll now find it by clicking the Protect Document button on the Review tab [or Tools> Protect Document in the main menu] The check box is at the bottom of the pane. Note, however, that it replaces the reviewer's name with "Author" as well as removing the timestamp.

BTW: Your installation of Office 3016 is at least 3 months behind on updates. The current version should be 15.31 or later.

AI: Artificial Intelligence or Automated Idiocy???
