With Google Drive, you can share files with different contacts, managing the permissions we’ve granted you. To further enhance its operation, Google updated this tool adding new options.
Google Drive facilitates managing permissions on shared files
Any changes that will be implemented will help users become more aware of what data they share and with whom they share them. For example, when we email a Google Drive file to a group of contacts, Access Checker will display the names and email addresses of those without permissions.
So no matter if we send a file to one or thirty contacts, we’ll know if we’ve forgotten to enable permissions, or if we’ve added people we don’t want to view or edit it.
And to further facilitate the process, Access Checker will function as our wizard, anticipating who needs to have access to which files and sharing them by default with the designated users.
Both administrators and users will, of course, have options to configure each of these new features and adjust them to their workflow, or to the dynamics of their businesses.
According to the Google team, this Access Checker update will reach G Suite accounts in the coming weeks.
