2014 - Google Drive adds activity feeds to strike back at Syncplicity


Google still doesn't want to add social intranet to its office suite - hopes that we'll use Google+ for this purpose. But at least they add social tools to existing services. Today the cloud file storage Google Drive gets activity feeds, that allows to track the actions of your colleagues by project or by specific file. It works like this: you open the folder and press the "I" button - the right panel shows the activity feed for this folder with such actions as moving and deleting files, renaming, uploading, sharing, adding comments. If you want to see the log by specific files - just select them in the list. The new feature will appear in all accounts during the week.
