Check file activity


You want to see if someone has already looked through a file.


  • Google Docs
  • Google Sheets
  • Google Slides


  1. On your computer, open the file in Google DocsSheets, or Slides that you can edit.
  2. At the top, click  ToolsActivity dashboard.
  3. On the left, click Viewers.

Note: You can only view activity on files owned by a Google Account that can use Activity dashboard, so it won't work on files created through a personal Gmail account or an Unmanaged account.


Keep track of users accessing a file or doc.
