"There is a saying in the teaching profession: whoever is working the hardest is learning the most. Too often, it’s the teacher.

I used this feature for the first time with purpose today and it was really helpful. I had a short audio recording on my desktop, I inserted it, and then dragged it to the timeline to have it be part of my recording.
I had a great time being a judge for the final pitches from Teachers College Innovation Awards 2019 which took place at TC's Academic Festival. The entire event was a great celebration of the work happening across departments at the college, and my department (Math, Science, & Technology) hosted some great parts of the program, including the Innovation Awards.

The last time I looked deeply into setting up notifications in Google Sheets, the options were either unclear or required creating custom scripts. Now, granted, this may have been over 5 years ago. I developed other habits and routines in order to keep track of various collaborative sheets, including setting up those sheets as Startup tabs for my browser so I had a constant reminder to check on them.
A question came up last week that prompted me to look into it again and sure enough, Google has introduced a version of notifications that is user-subscription based. That means an individual has to opt in (the document owner can't force notifications on participants). If it's with a small enough group, though, it's not too much of an ask to request that folks enable notifications especially when one of the options is a daily digest.
