As a little experiment for Apps Script Pulse fans we are going to start reposting the official Google Apps Script release notes on this site. Why? The release notes can be incredibly useful to keep up-to-date with latest Google Apps Script developments but currently unless you keep checking the page (or know someone with an unofficial RSS feed), they can be hard to monitor.
The February 14, 2022 release note contains a very useful security update which will let yo know when someone outside your organisation updates a script project. Details and link below:
February 14, 2022
Owners receive email alerts when someone outside the owner’s organization edits a script project in the new integrated development environment (IDE).
- For container-bound scripts: If someone outside the container owner’s organization creates or edits a container-bound script project, the container owner receives an email notification.
- For standalone scripts: If someone outside the script project owner’s organization edits a standalone script project, the script project owner receives an email notification.

This is nice. I hope they add this for scripts within the same organization.
I would second that request :)
Anyone knows how to turn this irritating new feature off?
Hi Fritz – I’m not seeing any information on the Google Workspace updates feed related to this feature so I don’t think there is domain control https://workspaceupdates.googleblog.com/search/label/Google%20Apps%20Script Also checking https://script.google.com/home/usersettings there isn’t a setting so I think currently no way to turn off. You might want to file a feature request in the Issue Tracker. https://developers.google.com/apps-script/support#missing_features
