Now users can have a dialogue in document with comments and suggestions.

“Use comments to have a discussion around your content. Highlight the section you want to discuss, right click and select Comment, then type your comment into the box,” said Google.

Follow NewsGram on Quora to get answers to all your questions.

You can tag a teammate by typing the “@” sign and their email address, and check the box to assign them an action item (they’ll receive an email notification).

Sometimes it’s helpful to look back at an older version of a Doc, Sheet or Slide to see how the contents have evolved or to restore an earlier version.

In the file, click the gray text at the top saying “Last edit was on [date].” You’ll see a list of versions organized by date to the right of your file; click on a version to view associated changes.

“If you’re working in Sheets, use edit history to track edits for a specific cell,” said Icacan.

The G Suite users can have a live discussion around the project, so they can collectively discuss and edit a file in real time.

“As G Suite’s tools are tightly integrated, it’s easy to present your Docs, Sheets and Slides in Google Meet,” Icacan added.

The users can create, view and edit Docs, Sheets and Slides even when they are offline.

First, to enable Offline mode in Google Drive, open Settings (click the gear icon in the top right of your screen in Drive) and check the box next to Offline. Then right click on what you want to work on offline and select “Available offline.”
