GAFE – Notify me when shared folders change

Tuesday 10th November 2015

If you share a lot of docs and files in your Google Drive, keeping up with who is editing which files can be a headache.

Rather than setting up notifications on every document you share, you can be notified if any document in a particular (shared) folder is being edited. Although this functionality is not yet built into Google Apps, there is a Chrome extension that will do the job.

Install the extension, select the folder you want to keep track of, and you will receive an email every time a file contained in the shared folder is edited, or if a new file is added to the folder. (Might come in handy for students submitting / editing assignments, etc)

The Gooru video below provides the details….
