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

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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 :)
