Now in Google Spreadsheets, some people are able to set "notification rules" that keep you up-to-speed with changes being made on spreadsheets. This handy feature gives you the ability to be notified on a daily or an as-it-happens basis when these specific events are triggered:

  • Anything in your spreadsheet changes
  • Anything on a specific sheet changes
  • A specific cell or a range of cells changes
  • Collaborators are added or removed
  • User submits a form

Both collaborators and viewers are able to set up notifications, however only collaborators will be able to see the usernames attached to updates.

  • Makes sense

    If your claim to fame is collaboration, then notification is a pretty high priority.

    I know that having this for some of the committees I've worked on would have been huge.

    Check also the notifications in GCal - set to 'only invited' or
    you end up with spam.
