New view in Google Drive shows recent activity in one place

What’s new

Google is rolling out a new view in Google Drive that shows all your pending access requests, recent comments, and file approvals to help you quickly see recent activity and take action, all in one place.

This new view will become a standalone page that’s accessible from the left hand navigation panel within Drive.

What’s changing 

  • Admins: There is no admin control for this feature.
  • End users:
    • Navigate to > click on “Activity” in the left-hand navigation:
      • Click on “Manage access” to take action on your pending access requests. This will not appear if pending access requests do not exist.
      • If you have pending approvals assigned to you, they will appear in the “Approvals” section.
      • Click “Review” to take action on your pending approvals.
      • If you've had comment-related activity in the past 30 days, you'll see it in the “Comments” section. Click “Open Comments” to take action on pending comments.
        • Comment notifications appear if you 1) subscribe to notifications, 2) participate in a specific comment thread, or 3) are mentioned in a comment in that file.

Rollout pace 

  • Rapid Release domains: Extended rollout (potentially longer than 15 days for feature visibility) starting on October 5, 2023
  • Scheduled Release domains: Gradual rollout (up to 15 days for feature visibility) starting on October 30, 2023


  • Available to all Google Workspace customers
