Project Collaboration Tip – How to Keep Comments from Source Documents

If you work in a team environment, you must know how hard it can be to collaborate with your team workers. It doesn’t matter if it is a big or a small team, and how well you get along with your colleagues, it is necessary to set up some project collaboration rules in order to manage your projects efficiently.
