Over the next few days, you’ll notice a new activity stream in Drive. When you open Drive, click a file the activity stream will appear, showing you who has taken action on files and folders in My Drive. You’ll see a rundown of what your team has been doing, such as editing and commenting on notes, adding a new spreadsheet, renaming a presentation, etc. If you select a specific file or folder, the stream will change to show you specific information about that item.
To Do This
- Open Google Drive
- Single click and any file or folder.
- When you click on it, it will give you a view of changes made to documents you have access to.
If your screen is too small you may not see the right sidebar containing the activity screen.
Here, you’ll see information on docs people have recently edited, where docs have been moved to, and what changes have been recently made. You only have access to viewing this information for docs your have editing rights to, and other users can only see your editing history if they have editing rights.
