How to suggest edits to someone else’s Google Doc

91582718If you’re not sure if others working on the same document as you would like the change you’re making, you can suggest the change instead. Your suggestions won’t change the original text until the document owner approves them. You must have edit or comment access to the document to suggest changes.

  1. Make sure you’re in Suggesting mode in the top corner, which may also appear as suggestion.
  2. To suggest an edit, simply begin typing where you think the edit should be made in the document. Your suggestions appear in a new colour, and the text you mark to delete or replace is crossed out (but not deleted until the document owner approves the suggestion).
  3. The document’s owner will receive an email with your suggestions. When they click any suggestion, they can Accept checkmark or Reject x it.
