Copy comments and suggestions in Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides

Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides make it easier than ever to collaborate on great content. Which is why it’s increasingly important not to lose a history of that collaboration when you duplicate a document, spreadsheet, or presentation. With that in mind, we’re making it possible to copy comments and suggestions any time you make a copy of a Docs, Sheets, or Slides file.

To copy your comments and suggestions, simply select “Make a copy” from the File menu and check the box for “Copy comments and suggestions” or “Copy comments.”

These comments and suggestions will then contain a note indicating that they were copied from the original document.

Check it out today, and collaborate—even on copies—with ease.
