Find out if Jeff really read that memo you sent last week

Google is adding a new activity dashboard to Docs, Sheets, and Slides that lets users with the ability to edit files check to see who else viewed the file and when they viewed it, via Engadget.

If you’re the kind of person who turns on read receipts to know when your friends and colleagues have seen your message but not responded, now you can get that same experience with the documents you share. With the new activity dashboard, you can find out if Jeff really read that memo last week. Or, more practically, users who accidentally mess up share permissions on documents can find out who accidentally managed to get access to the file.

G Suite administrators will be able to turn on the activity dashboard feature starting today, and the feature will roll out to users starting on March 21st.
