2. Click on 'Advanced'.

Next to each collaborator's name is their specific editing permissions, signified by the pencil icon in this example. If you want to change the permissions each collaborator has, click on the icon next to each collaborator's name and identify if you want them to now be able to edit, just comment, or just view the document.
