1: Assigning Tasks

The commenting feature in GSuite Tools is great for collaborating with others and creating dialogue back and forth.  By highlighting the text or image in your Google Doc, you can click on “Comments” then “Comment” in the top right-hand corner of your screen.

Assigning Tasks in Google Docs works through the commenting feature.  To assign a task, type in “+” and then the person’s email address.  This will automatically insert an “Assign to” checkbox below the comment dialogue.  By clicking this checkbox, you will assign that comment to the person.



Once the task is assigned, a checkmark button appears to mark when that tasks has been completed.  What a great way to keep everyone organized!

Bonus: By assigning a comment, Google Docs will automatically prompt you to share the Google Doc with that person to ensure you never get any “Request for Access” emails!
