New Sharing Options for Drive Files

posted Jul 27, 2015, 6:12 PM by Rita Girardi

Google is increasing the ability for users to keep their Drive files from being broadly shared or leaked without their approval. A new sharing option in the advanced sharing menu gives users the ability to disable downloading, printing, and copying on any Google Drive documents, spreadsheets, and presentations.

We expect to see this new feature in the UMICH domain in the next couple of weeks. Users can find the feature by opening the Share menu, click Advanced in the lower right hand corner, and select the 'Disable options to download, print and copy for commenters and viewers' box.

For more information, see Disable downloading, printing, and copying of any Google Drive file.
