How can I see the number of comments made on a Google Doc? Apart from manually counting them, of course...

  1. Go to your document

  2. In the address/url/search box of your web browser replace the edit from the document URL with mobilebasic

  3. The comments will be numbered with letters.

Let a = 1, b = 2 and so on...

  1. Go to the last comment.

If it has two letters:

Multiply the first number by 26 then add the second number.

Take [ad]:

1 * 26 = 26 + 4 = 30

That is the total comment number.

  • Thanks a lot. What do you mean by "Replace the edit at the end with mobilebasic" - what edit? End of what? Feb 27 '19 at 14:25
  • 2
    @WilliamHackett-Jones the URL of the document will have a / at the end or edit. Either add mobilebasic to the end or replace edit with mobilebasic
