Google’s productivity suite is very popular around the world because of its easy setup and ability to allow remote collaboration from anywhere. Everyone from students to business executives are using Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, and Slides to get things done. Much of what we do here at Talk Android is actually completed using Google Drive. People like staying exactly where they’re comfortable while working remotely with others.

This week, Google announced that expiration dates for access to files is rolling out now.

When sharing files, a new option appears on the list of people with access. It shows a small clock icon to the right of an individual’s name. Selecting that clock brings up a selection of times for file access to last, which you’re able to set manually if 7 or 30 days isn’t a fit.

Here is Google’s example:

For instance, imagine your business hires an outside contractor for a project lasting three months. To complete the job, that contractor needs to view a spreadsheet containing the contact information of your employees. Following this launch, you’ll be able to share your employee list in Sheets with the contractor, give them view access only, and set that access to expire when their contract does (in three months). If the contractor attempts to open the spreadsheet after the expiration date has passed, they’ll be denied access.

Although it has already started rolling out, you may not see the feature until late in the second quarter of 2016. Google says it is it is gradually rolling out the feature to all users over the course of 2-3 months.
