I happened to need this feature to "reference" an old email with my colleagues. And I managed to do this with "rfc822msgid:" search operator. Copy the Message-ID from the header of the message you want to reference, then search for it. For example, the Message-ID is abcdefg@example.com and you can search for rfc822msgid:abcdefg@example.com in the Gmail ...

The problem seems to be the part after the #, but it works if you use the Google Advanced Image Search directly. The full URL that you will get for the search above: https://www.google.com/search?as_st=y&tbm=isch&hl=en&as_q=berlin&as_epq=&as_oq=&as_eq=&cr=&as_sitesearch=&safe=images&tbs=isz:lt,islt:4mp,sur:fmc&...

This is possible for google sheets without an applet like in the other answer. You can only set up notifications for yourself. You won’t get notifications when you make changes on your spreadsheet, but you’ll get notifications when others make changes. On your computer, open a spreadsheet in Google Sheets. At the top, click Tools > Notification rules. In ...

It is not possible to have a "folder of links" in Drive. What you can do is create a document and put the links in there. This document can be easily shared with others. But, as @Krampus mentions, there are plenty of bookmark-sharing services available. Google even has its own one: Google Bookmarks. Another one I used before is Delicious. Wikipedia ...

Google Drive does not offer the option to search for other users' public documents (see here). However, it is possible for users to find these documents via Google Search using a filter. In order to search exclusively for public Google documents, a user would have to search using the following: site:docs.google.com/document/d [keyword] To create a tool ...

While this question already has an accepted answer, I just found an alternative that for me, more closely satisfies the OP's question: While you can't share URLs as @OrangeBox points out, you can share search queries. Using Gmail's Search Operators, I've found that it's usually pretty easy to return a single result from even a large body of emails. So the ...

The original accepted answer is out of date. The current steps are: Navigate to https://www.youtube.com/ Click your account icon at the top right, and select "Creator Studio" from the menu. In the videos panel click the "Edit" button next to the video you with to share. On the "Basic Info" tab, ensure, the privacy is set to "Private". Otherwise, the option ...

Update 2013-Oct-4: Looks like this doesn't work anymore. Now Google Docs Presentation seems to retrieve image-by-URL once upon inserting, and therefore no website tracking tools work anymore. Update 2014-Jan-11: Seems to be working for Sheets but not Docs Any web site analytics tool can help. For example, www.statcounter.com (it's free): Go to statcounter....

Unfortunately you can't share your entire Google Drive like you can share a folder. Google doesn't treat Drive that way. Think of your Google Drive storage as a post office. You can give anyone you want access to as many of the individual "boxes" inside the post office lobby as necessary, but you can't give anyone access to the entire building. The ...

Even if you have Edit permission, sometimes the File -> "See revision history" menu option is grey-out. I've seen this happen after the page has been loaded in a tab for a long time. In this situation, reloading the Chrome tab for the Sheet has restored the Revision History menu option.

The secret sauce is tbm=isch. tbm stands for "to be matched", and isch is short for "image search." Example: https://www.google.com/search?q=greyhound+puppies&tbm=isch

Update I guess Facebook heard you because just 1 month after you posted it, it now happens by itself when you click "share" (unless you uncheck the option). Well, as long as you abide by the following rules: The secondary post must be completely public. The original item must be an external link and not a Facebook post. You share the secondary post on a ...

Apparently, it's a known issue... LinkedIn has been "working on it" for more than a month, with no word to users other than that. https://www.linkedin.com/help/linkedin/forum/question/496565

No it is not possible. Google does not have the tools for and refer to 3rd party scripts. They confirmed to me that they do not offer this much needed admin functionality to better manage permissions. In our case our Google Drive has become unmanageable now.

This is a problem I've encountered as well. When a calendar is shared with a user directly, it also adds the calendar to the user's calendar list. Sharing the calendar through a group bypasses this step. You can do this programmatically using Google Apps Manager as part of your provisioning process. These three commands below will create a user, add them to ...

Are you sure your Sharing settings look like these? I've just created a document and edited it without any troubles (created with my google account and edited using different browser - not logged in).

That is correct, you are not allowed to reward users for sharing. Users must share something because they really want to, not because they get rewarded for it. BTW, the feed dialog was deprecated. While it is available again, I recommend using the share dialog. AFAIK it is allowed on Twitter, at least i did not find anything about that in the terms: https:/...

If an owners account is deleted, the files are deleted as well. If an owner deletes a file, the file is deleted for everyone involved. It doesn't make sense for Google to have stagnant files, space costs money in the world of data-centers.
