We’ve been conducting a poll with some of our customers, asking them what new features they would like us to add to Onehub.
One customer wrote in asking us to add redline capabilities when editing documents so they can see the exact changes made and who made them.
So to whomever wrote in with that request — today is your lucky day! Because Onehub is tightly integrated with Google Docs, that functionality already exists and customers can use it right now.
To enable redline edits in documents, you need to turn on Google Suggesting mode. Not sure how to do that? OMG, today is your lucky day, too, because we created a video to walk you through the process! Using Suggesting mode is something we recommend as it makes the editing process much more efficient.
Having written thousands of blog posts over the course of my career, I can confirm that the old adage “writing is re-writing” is 100% most definitely real.

Switching to Suggesting mode redlines your document, so you can see the exact changes that team members make. Whether it’s removing a word, fixing a typo, or adding a sentence, it’s all there for you to see who made what edits.
