25 Sep View your activity in Google Drive
Sometimes it can be handy to check on your recent activity in Google Drive, to monitor what you have done to with forgotten files, or if you need to remind yourself or a colleague of when I file was created or shared.
When you enter Google Drive, you can take a look at your recent activity feed by clicking on the ‘i’ icon in the top right corner, which lets you view details. Here you will have two tabs, one for details and one for activity.
Select the activity tab to view files you have created, edited and deleted along with the date of the action. This is a great tool if you can’t find a file that it turns out you deleted, as you can click on the file name and go straight to the file.
If you’re a little disorganised, this can be a great tool to go back and find files you have been working on, and make sure that you put them into folders and sort them correctly. This tool can also help to solve disputes about actions taken on a shared file.
