Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 13, 2013 9:33 PM

A new collaborative word processing program is now available...Draft. This is quite a bit different than Google Docs, and has some features that may convince you to give it a test drive. 

When you collaborate on a document are you frustrated that others may make changes to your document, and it is at times difficult to find the original version. Draft has you accept or reject each change that is suggested.

You may also "mark versions" of your work and compare them.

Draft is not as robust as Word (or Google Docs) but it is a simple word processing program that has additional features not mentioned here. As far as I can tell it is free at this point, but there is one feature, called Ask a Professional" where you can send off your document and get help. From what I have read there will be a fee for this.
