Google Drive: Details and Activity View

Drive Activity

You may have recently noticed a new feature in your Google Drive account...the details and activity view.  By clicking on the associated icon you can choose to view or hide this feature while working in Drive.  The content displayed is from the currently active folder in your account and will show you, as it is aptly named, all the details and activity conducted by you and your collaborators.  You may find it useful to know that the folders and files are linked directly to themselves and the magnifying glass icon will take you to the folder in which the file is located.  I think the biggest impact this feature seems to have is with regard to helping you find recent files easily and stay on top of collaboration among your students/colleagues.
