I love Google Docs for sharing and reviewing documents but I do miss the features of Microsoft Word’s track changes. Well, Google Docs has recently added that feature. Now when you open a Doc you will see a new item in the toolbar entitled Editing. This gives you the choice of “Editing” as you normally would, “Suggesting” which turns on the track changes, and “Viewing” which views the original document or the accepted changes. This long awaited feature elevates Google Docs into an even better collaborative tool than it was before. If you are interested in using this feature just open a Google Doc and, under the Editing menu choose Suggesting then make your changes.
As of the writing of this post it appears that this feature is only available in Docs and not in Spreadsheets or Presentations.
