Today I wanted to share 5 different Google Docs with a team of colleagues. I did not accept the default where 'Notify people' is checked because this meant that team members would each receive 5 notifications. Sure, it might be helpful to have the notification emails to refer to in the future, but I decided to instead copy the URL of the shared document, uncheck the notify box, and then create a descriptive list containing all 5 documents in a single email. The intent here was to create a single point of reference for the things we ended up discussing in the meeting.
