Now a days, employees are not only with one another, but with third-party vendors, clients, customers, often on a temporary basis. To keep companies information safe in these situations, Google introduced the ability to set an “expiration date” for specific user access to files in Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, and Slides.

If the expiration date ends and the cointractor  attempts to open the spreadsheet after the expiration date has passed, they’ll be denied access. You can’t able to set expiration dates for file owners or users with edit access.

This feature is currently not available for all users, will roll out gradually over the course of two to three months.
