    Okay, just sharing a doc with many people is easy; what I want to know is the best way to share a doc without everyone seeing each other's comments. I'm trying to get a bunch of feedback on something I wrote. Is the best way just to individually share the doc with all these people? That is, have, say, 23 different shared versions of the doc? I just hope there's a more efficient way. Thanks!

    How do you currently share the document now? Google drive can give a link for people to read, and Optionally write. Then tell the people to email you their comments.

    I just do the usual: I go to "share" and include the people I wish to share it with.

    How do I just get a link to give people to read?

    On my cellphone, when I compose a message and invoke Google Drive, it gives 2 choices: link to read only or link to read and write.
