Google Docs Will Soon Be Getting a Comments Filter

If you have ever ended up participating in any kind of Google Doc that was being edited in a collaborative manner, you would be well aware that the comments that end up getting left can often be rather chaotic and difficult to make sense of. Because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up preventing people from being able to effectively collaborate on Google Docs and the like, Google is working on an update that will help organize the comments and enable you to filter the ones that are specifically meant for you thereby allowing you to figure out what needs to be done.

The way that you can now filter comments is that you can choose to see all comments, ones that are meant for you or ones that have been resolved. This can really help to make it easier for people to collaborate on a wide range of Google Docs based projects, and it can help speed up the process in quite a few ways as well. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that this is not the only change that is coming to Google Docs.

Another change will allow you to see a list of all the activity that occurred from the last time you opened the document. This can help you get up to speed a lot more quickly, and users are going to be glad that they are getting a feature like this so soon. This is essentially a fourth sorting option for comments since it shows you all comments but will filter out ones that you might have already seen based on when you previously interacted with the document. Chances are that more updates like this will be coming in the future.
