There’s a simple, powerful, and fun technique which leads to a better Google Wave experience for you and your friends: edit other people’s content! You can edit any message in a wave, not just those you started. This helps in better & healthier collaboration. You can edit a message by double-clicking or by selecting “Edit this message” from the menu in top-right. Another feature is “Gardening” – means summarising, deleting old content and generally tidying a wave up. Gardening keeps a wave at its most fruitful. “we’re working on features to make gardening easier. To begin, we’re adding “Edit” button. Coming soon is a “restore” button, which winds back a wave to a previous state, in case someone messes up. Other features will help organising content in a wave and emphasise recently edited portions. We’re also working on more granular access controls for waves, like allowing some participants to read a wave but not edit it. While openness and trust’s best for collaboration, sometimes you really do need limitations so we’re working on flexible ways to express this,” Wave team.
