If you’re like us, you share a lot of docs and files in Google Drive. Keeping up with who is editing which files can be a headache. A while ago, we made a post about how to get notified via email whenever one of the Google Sheets you own is edited. Now, we’re going to show you how to take it one step further.
Rather than setting up notifications on every document you share, you may just want to know if any document in a particular folder is being edited. Although this functionality is not yet built into Google Apps, there is a Chrome Extension (link) we found that will do it. Simply select the folder you want to keep track of and you will receive an email every time a file contained in that folder is edited or even if a new file is added to the folder.
