At the top right of the screen, you’ll find a blue Share button. Click it to open sharing settings.
In the menu, find the person you want to share temporarily with. You’ll only be able to pick an expiration date if they’re someone you’ve already shared the file with.
If you haven’t shared the file with that person yet, simply add in their email address and click Send or Share. Then re-enter the Share menu again.
Next to the person’s name, click the down arrow and choose Give temporary access.
- Beside “Access expires,” select a date and time to set as the expiration date.
- Click save.
That’s it! Now whomever you’ve shared the document with will only be able to access it between now and the expiration date and time!
