A simpler way to view sharing settings in Google Drive shared folders

Posted by Google: 16 Feb 2016 04:19 PM PST
Google Drive users love to collaborate with each other, but if you’ve ever tried changing the sharing settings for a folder, you know that it’s not always easy to find out who the folder has been shared with or how to update the permissions.

In the coming weeks, we will be adding a new “people icon” to shared folders, which simplifies seeing who you’ve shared a folder with and whether they have View, Edit, or Comment permissions. With this change, we hope to reduce the amount of clutter for users and make sharing more transparent for folder owners.
