Google Docs The differences between using the @ in a Doc and commenting

 I have had a few teachers asking me recently about the difference between using the @ symbol in a Doc and the comment feature and what that looks like.

  • Doc in body of Doc
    • If typing in a Doc and use the @ symbol - type in someone's name and they will then be alerted and you can share the doc with them without having to go into the Share icon.
  • Comment Section
    • In the comment section you type in the @ symbol and then their email address you will see a note stating that the person you included has been added to the discussion and an email has been sent. The sharing settings will then come up for you as well.
Embedded below is a 1 minute and 51 second YouTube tutorial.

Take care,
