Google Docs get comment-only access sharing
Tuesday 13 September 2011
Google Docs users can now share and receive feedback on their documents without having to give people access to edit or change their documents.
The new, and much requested, sharing option will be rolled out to users over the next few days and will join the currently available Google Docs sharing options "can view" and "can edit."
"To give comment-only access to your document, click on the Share button. From there, add in the contact you’d like to share your document with, and select Can comment," said Google in a September 12 blog post.
The same privileges can be given to anyone on the web by changing the sharing settings within your Google document.
Google has been eagerly adding features to its free, cloud-based document editing suite as rivals' services such as Microsoft's Office and Apple's Pages (via iWork) start to make the shift to the cloud.
