How to Turn on G Suite Google Drive Notifications

Notifications are an important part of any business cloud storage and collaboration suite. Irrespective of the cloud, every employee must configure the notification settings properly to ensure they stay on top of communication and not miss out on important things.

Most business cloud suites follow a conservative approach when it comes to defining default settings fearing that too many notifications annoy their customers. Therefore, as a user, it is important you configure notifications as per your need. In this article, we discussed how to configure notification settings in G Suite’s Google Drive.
