Tech Tip Tuesday – View the Edit History of a Cell in Sheets

You can now easily view the edit history of a cell in Google Sheets! This includes who made the last edit, when that edit was made, and the cell’s previous value.

To start using Show edit history:

  • Right click on any cell and select “Show edit history” from the dropdown menu.
  • A dialogue box will appear that will show you:
    • The user who last made a direct edit in the cell
    • A timestamp of the edit
    • The previous value and current value of the cell
    • Arrow keys in the top right corner which toggle back and forth between edits
