New Activity Dashboard for Google Docs, Sheets and Slides

Google has released a new Activity dashboard for G Suite (Google Apps) at Boise State.

The Activity dashboard allows you to see who viewed shared Google Docs, Sheets or Slides files for which you have edit access, as well as then when those files were viewed.

You can access this new feature in Google Docs, Sheets and Slides by opening a document and selecting Tools > Activity Dashboard from the top menu.

Google’s intent with this feature is to give you better information to decide how and when to follow up with collaborators.

Editors have the option of adjusting document privacy settings to control whether viewing a shared document shows up in the Activity dashboard.

For information about configuring privacy settings, as well as additional information about using this new feature, visit the Activity dashboard Help Center¬†on Google’s website.

For additional information, contact the Help Desk at (208) 426-4357 or helpdesk@boisestate.edu.
