Get Notified of Google File Changes

Have you ever wanted to know if a collaborative Google file is edited? You may be sharing a Sheet (or Form) and want to know when someone edits or submits a response. Google lets you do this on all their file formats. It is easy, and each collaborator can set their notification settings.

*Just a note, all collaborators must set their own notification settings. That is the only way they will get notifications. The owner can not set notifications for others, only for themselves.

Set Notifications:

  1. Open the Document, Sheet, Slide, or other Google file.

  2. Click on “Tools” at the top and click on “Notification Settings”.

  1. Choose what changes you want to be notified of.

    • Documents have these options.

  • Slides and Drawings have these options.

  • Sheets (and sheets from Forms) have these options

  1. You will receive an email with notification updates.

This is a great way to keep up-to-date with changes in collaborative files. Make sure to set notifications if you do not want to miss anything.
