Google Drive finally will have access checker for shares


Did you ever share content with anyone via  Google Drive,  and there is some conflict when it comes to releasing access? Yes, although  Google is optimizing the verification, the problem still happens from time to time. And a new tool should further improve the scanning, with options in a dedicated checkbox, called the "Access checker".

The news was announced on Tuesday (03) via the official G Suite blog and automatically analyzes the settings to see if the person to whom you are sending the message has the necessary permissions to do so. Otherwise, this feature asks if you want to change the status before confirming a new distribution.

Check out the main additions below:

Easier access: You can now see the names or email addresses of those who do not have access to the file
Support for more file types: the access checker accepts files from a team drive

Share directly: the tool can anticipate who needs access to a file and standardize sharing for recurring recipients

These three alternatives can replace, with just one click, the current "Receive shareable link."

Corporate "access checker"
As everything that goes to G Suite needs to have a dedicated model for large groups, then Google takes the opportunity to clarify how novelty works in corporate environments.

You can measure the level of sharing in three alternatives, according to the need for privacy, either for your recipients, only for members of your community or link distribution to anyone.
The access checker should soon be available for all versions of the G Suite, and distribution should happen gradually as the Mountain View company itself makes adjustments during the launch, based on user feedback.
