Google Drive: Working on the same file at the same time

Google Drive: Working on the same file at the same time


Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides make it easy to work on your files with
other people. It doesn’t matter whether they’re in the
same room or halfway around the world. You just
share your file with the people you want to work with. Let’s take a look at how useful this can
be. Amy and John use Google Docs to work on their travel newsletter at the same
time even when they’re miles apart. Amy create
a new document and shares it with John. She gives him
edit access which means that both of them can make
changes to the document at the same time. Once they’re set up, Docs
lets them work together in a few different ways. Amy knows when John is working on the
newsletter because his profile picture appears onscreen and she can watch him work is a types. She can use chat to start a conversation
and if John isn’t online at the same time she is, she
can stay in touch with comments so the next time John views
the file, he can respond to Amy and Amy can click “Resolve” when he’s addressed
her comment. Between chat and comments, no good ideas
get left behind. Docs, Sheets, and Slides also make it easy to
bring other people into the conversation, so
when Amy has a question for her boss, Catherine, she types Catherine’s name into a
comment using the plus sign and Catherine gets an email letting her
know she needs to weigh in. Google Docs, Sheets, and slides keep everyone on the same page. For more

  1. Hi, Thank you for sharing the knowledge. I have one doubt. Can we protect the sheet, like, other users can only edit once but they should not modify again?
