Share for Review - Option to add multiple users as Owners.
On many occasions, we have multiple designers working on the same InDesign file. I've noticed on the new Share for Review feature that only the user that created the Review has access to the comments in the Review panel; other users who open the document get a "no access to comments" message (See attached images). I think it would be extremely beneficial to allow multiple 'owners' of the review, so as to allow multiple users to see comments made in the Review panel.

It has been 3 years... this is the most requested feature. Please for the love of god add this feature.

This function is much needed. We have several team members that need to be owners of this content to move documents along. By limiting the number of owners to one, we create a bottle neck in the workflow. Need to be able to pass ownership, or allow for multiple users to have ownership.

We work as a team & the ability to have multiple owners be able to share documents & update links for review is very much needed. Right now we're having to save different copies/versions of the same document which is confusing & not efficient.
This is a key feature for our team so multiple coworkers can make edits based on comments within InDesign itself. We would also benefit from moving ownership so when one is out of office could shift to another to "update link".
When is this feature going to be available? Without shared ownership of files, the review feature is not helpful for design teams and co workers who need to edit the file for review.

I work in a team of 8 designers and we all are in and out of the same documents at any given time. For each of us to be able to see review comments and make those changes would be critical to us using this feature. Otherwise, the good ole comments in Adobe Acrobat will continue to be our staple and not a useful as the share for review in Indesign.

This feature would be extremely helpful for me and my coworkers.
Amy Cragg commented
This is very important to me and my business partner as we work remotely on the same shared Indesign files. Please add a feature to assign multiple owners to documents and to change a document's owner so we can take advantage of the review feature. Without shared ownership the review feature is not as useful as it could be.

Can't believe there still isn't the option to hand this over or share with another owner.

The ability to change the owner would also be important.
Please add the ability to assign multiple owners. Currently this is a 'collaborative feature' that still requires a single persons actions as a bottleneck.
Sharon Ammons commented
We have multiple people making edits in documents. We cannot use this function if every member of our team cannot access the comments for the document.
Seth Chinnis commented
This is an essential feature - especially with more and more distributed teams. The "collaboration" portion of Creative Cloud is really undermined by not having the ability for more than one designer to update documents and share them for review.
Lindsey Beck commented
Please make this a priority. Switching links as different team members update effectively undoes any streamlining this feature was created for.
We are just starting with our international team also with the cloud and want to use the Share for Review function very much. But the fact that the reviews are only displayed to the owner is extremely annoying. Because if a colleague goes on vacation or even gets sick, a graphic designer who steps in cannot see anything in the document and would have to go via the browser. This can not be in the sense of the inventor, because it should be a tool for seamless collaboration!
Please work on this!
Please make this feature as we need the same issue resolved, it's creating an issue for us not being able to have another person share what they have done for updates.
Please please add this this feature! Share for Review is presently unusable for a team with more than one designer.

I had hoped this would be in the 2022 release, but sadly not. Share for review is a great feature but not practical across teams when other designers may be picking up amends etc.
It saves so much time and file sizes by not outputting PDFs and emailing them to clients, shame I can’t use it more.

This is highly necessary for working in teams and being able to see all review comments without having to delete the current review... please update!
