Description


Getting input on your work can be difficult with large teams and multiple drafts. Create your files in Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides, then share them with team members and stakeholders to receive targeted suggestions. You can share files with people outside your company who aren't on G Suite, too.


Examples

  • Get specific, actionable feedback from your team or from external people on proposals, reports, presentations, and more.
  • Assign tasks in the document to specific people.
  • Keep all your drafts in one file—changes update for everyone in real time. Now you don’t need to share a new draft every time you edit your work, and everyone always accesses the most recent version.
  • Revert back to a previous version in case of mistakes.
  • Keep an online record of all changes and comments.
