Change author in track changes in word 2016

Hi Experts
I am wanting to change the user name in track changes. One team member made the changes but it needs to be another team members name.
Hope this can be done.
Thanks in advance

Thanks for your reply.

I have managed to change them all to Author. This will do what we need in this instance. I then found a way using the File, Options, Personalize your copy of Microsoft Office. Change the User Name and Initials and then ticking the tick box works. You can change this around as many times as you need....not ideal but does the trick :)
