Google has this week enabled a new feature within their Google Drive cloud storage service with the addition of a new Google Drive Activity Stream, which has been added to enable users of Google Drive to easily see the changes have occurred to shared files within the service.
The new addition builds on the roll out last month of updates to the Google Drive service that made quick changes to your folders easier, such as renaming, sharing, organising and more with the addition of a new drop-down menu at the top of each shared folder with Google Drive.
Google explains a little more: “Drive makes group projects easier because everyone can share files and work together. But in today’s busy world, it’s tough to track the changes to all your shared to-do lists, budgets and presentations, especially when content changes so often. So starting today, you’ll notice a new activity stream in Drive – a single, easy-to-view place to review every action taken on your files and folders.
When you open Drive, click the “info” button in the top right corner and 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 team notes, adding a new spreadsheet, renaming a presentation, sharing with your boss and more.”
