How To Track Changes In Google Docs, Sheets or Slides

If you use Microsoft Word and Google Documents, you might be familiar with how you can track changes in Word and how you’re struggling to do so in Google Documents. This is a really helpful feature if you’re a regular user of this software, especially if you’re working in a team or lead a team that’s working on the same file.

With this feature, you can see the revisions made by anyone who holds access to that particular file. Tracking changes in Microsoft Word is something that all of us are familiar with. However, it is really confusing in the case of Google Documents. The truth, Google Documents does have this feature and by following the steps below, you’ll be able to track changes in Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides.

How To Track Changes In Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides

  1. First, open the doc, sheet, or slide file for which you want to see revisions
  2. Then, to the end of the menu on the top, you’ll find a link that describes when the file was last edited. Click on this link
  3. This will now take you to the version history screen. On the right pane, you’ll see the list of all edits that were made in the file along with the name of the author that made it, date, and time. Clicking on any of the edits history will highlight what was edited in the right pane

    • By clicking the pointer next to the edits history, you’ll get to see more details
    • Finally, you can even replace the current file with any of the previous edits. To do so, simply click on any of the previous edits history and then click on the Restore this version button at the top.

That’s everything about tracking changes in Google docs, sheets, and slides. The steps are relatively easy but what confuses is how the process differs from seeing revisions in Microsoft Word.
