When somebody assigns you a task in a Google Doc/Slide/Sheet you can see it in the Drive file list

Tasks can be assigned via the Social Commenting feature in the Google editors (Doc/Slides/Sheets etc.)

See our previous tip: ACTION ITEMS IN COMMENTS

In Drive:

Locate a Folder which contains a Google Doc/Slide/Sheet which has a task assigned to you.

You will notice a small black circle containing a number to the right of the file name - this is the number of comments assigned to you.

When you access the file and complete a “task” the number in the circle will be lower.

You can also search/filter files with such actions via the Advanced Search dropdown and selecting Action items only from the options.

This generates the search string: followup:actionitems
