View your Slack activity from within Google Drive

Never miss an important update, on either Slack or Google Drive. We’re adding activity events to allow you to see, in Drive, when a file is shared or discussed from within Slack. Two types of actions are logged as events: someone sharing a file stored in Google Drive, and someone commenting—within Slack—on a Google Drive file that has been shared in Slack.

In these events, you will see information about when the action occurred, who did it, and where it happened. The events in the activity logs are private to only those who have access to both the document, as well as the Slack channel or team where the document was shared or discussed.

This launch follows the previously announced Drive integration with Slack, where we added the ability to see notifications in Slack of activity happening in Google Drive. In order to take advantage of this feature, install the Google Drive integration today.

Whether you’re trying to stay on top of Slack discussions, know what’s being collaborated on, or a new team member catching up on prior discussions, these event logs help you keep track of what’s happening to your files in both locations.

We’re also launching international language support for our Google Drive integration. If you use Slack in French, Spanish, German or Japanese, the Google Drive bot will send messages and respond to you in your preferred language.
