Getting Alerts When Google Docs are Edited by using WatchDoc

Today’s video is about an extremely helpful Google Chrome Extension called Watch Doc. With this extension, you will be notified any time someone edits a Google Doc that you share with them. Many people have asked if Google Docs comes with this functionality. Though the native Google Docs does not alert you when someone edits a Doc, Watch Doc does a good job of adding this functionality as a third-party app. I think this is one of the more useful Chrome Extensions and I think you’ll find it to be very helpful.
