As suggestions are not displayed any more in google docs an sheets when opening them in aodocs interface, would it be possible to force opening in a new tab ?

My users are very confused

  • Hello Xavier,

    Thank you for your request in the community. 

    For context, I confirm that when you are using Native Google files embedded in the AODocs interface (iFrames, if you are familiar with this term), you can not see the suggestions. 

    We understand the confusion that this behavior can cause. It's a known issue that we have already brought to Google's attention. We are in contact with them and working on bringing all the Google editor functionalities while embedded.

    As a workaround, we were looking at the Google Drive APIs to identify if a file currently has suggestions and provide a hint to the user to open the file in another window. Unfortunately, Google Drive does not yet provide such API.
