Learn How to Add Comments in Google Docs

For many situations, Google Docs is an excellent replacement for document editing for plenty of cases.

One such situation is ‘environments’ where you are often collaborating on a document with a group of people. While the group can gather in person to work on the document, there are many other ways that you can all give your input.

Inserting comments is a great way to insert notes for collaborators as well as for other viewers to see. Especially teachers love the ability to leave specific comments for the authors about just a selected part of the document.

For Teacher’s Note- User/Teacher should ensure that your students invite you to the Document as a collaborator, so you get access to it and precisely revise the text or leave comments on the document.
