    Google Workspace Update: New ways to discover and navigate comments in Google Sheets


    New ways to discover and navigate comments in Google Sheets

    Posted: 02 Jun 2021 01:28 PM PDT

    What’s changing

    Now in Google Sheets, you can:
    • Review comments and conversation threads in a sidebar.
    • Apply filters to find the most relevant comments for getting your work done when a document is highly collaborative.
    • Page through comment threads in a document in the comment overlay.


    Use the new comments sidebar to see all the conversations happening in a spreadsheet. Quickly reply, resolve, or create new conversations in collaboration with your colleagues.



    In highly collaborative spreadsheets, apply filters in the sidebar to find the most relevant feedback (for example, comment threads that need your response).


    Take action directly in the sidebar when tasks are complete, or conversations have been resolved.


    Use the new navigator to progress through comments in the spreadsheet.



    Who’s impacted

    End users


    Why you’d use it

    Collaborating with teammates is more important than ever, and comments are a powerful way to discuss and collaborate wherever you and your colleagues are, and whenever you’re working. By making it easier to review, respond to, and resolve comments in Sheets, it’s easier to collaborate to create more impactful data and analysis.


    Additional details

    With these new changes, you now have easy ways to see and navigate all comments in a spreadsheet by clicking:
    • The comment icon in the Appbar.
    • The "open all comments" item in the sheet tab.
    • The "open" from any comment anchored to a cell.
    • A new button in the comment overlay that allows you to page between comment threads in a document.

    Getting started

    • Admins: There is no admin control for this feature.
    • End users: This feature will be ON for everyone.

    Rollout pace

    • Scheduled Release domains: Extended rollout (potentially longer than 15 days for feature visibility) starting on June 16, 2021

    Availability

    • Available to all Google Workspace customers, as well as G Suite Basic and Business customers.

    Google Workspace Update: Customize the color of your folders and shortcuts to folders in Google Drive


    Customize the color of your folders and shortcuts to folders in Google Drive

    Posted: 03 Jun 2021 10:46 AM PDT

    What’s changing 

    You can now customize the color of folders in shared drives, and shortcuts to folders. Previously, it was only possible to customize the color of folders in My Drive. 


    Shared drives empower teams and organizations to store, access, and collaborate on files. Shortcuts are pointers to files that are stored in another folder or in another drive, which make it easy to surface content without creating copies of files. 


    Who’s impacted 

    Admins, end users, and developers 


    Why you’d use it 

    Assigning colors to specific folders can help you visually organize your Google Drive. For example, you can assign colors to your most important folders, making it easier to quickly navigate to them in Drive. 

    Note: Custom folder colors in My Drive, shared drives, and shortcuts are only visible to you. 


    Getting started 

    • Admins: There is no admin control for this feature. 
    • Developers: You can use the Drive API to set folder colors. 
    • End users: There is no end user setting for this feature. Visit the Help Center to learn more about customizing folder colors


    Rollout pace 

    Google Drive on web 

    Google Drive on mobile 
    • Gradual rollout (up to 15 days for feature visibility) starting on June 3, 2021. 
    • Note: Requires app version 2.21.20 and up for Android and 4.2021.20204 and up for iOS 


    Availability 

    • Available to all Google Workspace customers, as well as G Suite Basic and Business customers, and users with personal Google Accounts
