2. Alternatively, you can:

  • open a Google file and press the Share button in the top right corner of the Google editor


  • open a file in the Google Drive file editor and select Permissions in the Smartbar menu


Important: The Permissions option is available only for library administrators and if in the library security:
- the library Permission Propagation is set to Flexible permissions, and
- only administrators can change permissions

    • Can edit
