    Block shares from another user in Google Drive

    Posted: 22 Jul 2021 12:22 PM PDT

    What’s changing 

    As we recently announced on the Cloud Blog, we’re adding the ability to block another user in Google Drive. If blocked, the user will not be able to share any Drive items with you, and items owned by the user will not be able to be shared with you or be shown when you’re browsing Google Drive. In addition, your files will not be available to the user you’ve blocked, even if you’ve previously shared items with them. 


    Note that you can’t block users within your domain, and blocking a user on Drive will also block them from interacting with you on other apps and services


    Who’s impacted 

    End users 


    Why you’d use it 

    Google Drive enables both individuals and organizations to store, share, and collaborate from anywhere. Drive’s sharing capabilities fuel productivity and collaboration, but bad actors can abuse tools that are meant to facilitate helpful sharing. That's why we are creating a way to block other users. By using this feature, you can: 
    Block another user from sharing any content with you in the future. This can be a useful control if, for example, another user has a history of sending spam or abusive content. 
    Remove all existing files and folders shared by another user. This is an easy way to get rid of all spam or abusive content shared from a specific user at one time. 
    Remove another person’s access to your content, even if you’ve previously shared it with them. 


    User blocking will not only preserve Drive sharing’s helpfulness, but most importantly preserve the safety of Drive users.

  • Google Workspace Update: Indicate whether you’ll join a meeting virtually or in person on Google Calendar

    Indicate whether you’ll join a meeting virtually or in person on Google Calendar

    Posted: 07 Jul 2021 09:13 AM PDT

    Quick launch summary 

    To make Google Calendar more flexible in the hybrid workplace, we're introducing new RSVP options for Calendar invitations. With this update, you can indicate how you plan to join a meeting - in the meeting room, or virtually. 


    Then, both the organizer and guests will be able to see how attendees are planning to attend the meeting in the event detail. This will help meeting attendees know what to expect when joining a meeting, and prepare accordingly. 


    Note that if you select the new RSVP options, the join method details (e.g. “joining virtually”) are not shared with contacts on other platforms, such as Microsoft Outlook. The new RSVP options will initially be available on Google Calendar, and will be coming to calendar invitations in Gmail soon. We’ll announce on the Workspace Updates blog when it’s available.

    Use custom templates in new Google Sites for consistent structure and design for your sites

    Posted: 25 Jun 2021 11:14 AM PDT

    Quick launch summary 

    In addition to the ten existing site templates built for common site uses, you can now distribute custom site templates across your organization. You can create and share templates that work best for how you display and share information within your organization. Additionally, your co-workers can easily access custom templates, allowing them to quickly adapt and use them as needed. This reduces time spent on formatting and structuring your sites, giving you more time to focus on turning ideas into impact. 



    Additional details

    Share a preview of your templates with co-workers Template previews are a quick and easy way to share templated sites with your team, without necessarily submitting a site to your domain’s template gallery. Simply add “/template/preview” after the site ID in the URL. This will allow any user with read or edit permissions to view the draft site or make a copy of the site. Note that users with published viewer permissions cannot preview a template.


    Expanded language support for existing Site templates
    In addition to the sixteen languages currently supported, you can now use existing site templates in the following additional languages:
    • Australian English
    • Filipino
    • Hindi
    • Indonesian
    • Korean
    • Polish
    • Simplified Chinese
    • Turkish

    Roadmap

    New and improved Google Chat user interface, now for everyone

    Posted: 25 Jun 2021 09:16 AM PDT

    Quick launch summary 

    In March 2021, we announced several enhancements to Google Chat on the web (i.e. chat.google.com) and the Chat Progressive Web Application (PWA). At that time, these changes were only launched for domains with the Gmail service turned on


    Beginning June 30, 2021, these changes will roll out to domains with the Gmail service turned off as well. The new interface gives users a consistent and predictable Chat experience across Chat in Gmail and Chat standalone surfaces. It also includes new integrations to help productivity — see the original announcement for more information

  • Update to some Google Drive file links

    Update to some Google Drive file links

    Posted: 23 Jun 2021 09:00 AM PDT

    What’s changing 

    We’re releasing a security update which will apply to some Drive files. This will make Google Drive files more secure by updating their links and may lead to some new file access requests. 


    Who’s impacted 

    Admins and end users 


    Why it’s important 

    This security update is being applied to some files in Google Drive to make sharing links more secure. The update will add a resource key to sharing links. Once the update has been applied to a file, users who haven't viewed the file before will have to use a URL containing the resource key to gain access, and those who have viewed the file before or have direct access will not need the resource key to access the file. Learn more about resource keys and how they might impact your files. 


    Getting started 

    End users:  End users who own or manage impacted files will receive an email notification starting July 26, 2021 with their impacted files. End users will have until September 13 to determine how the update is applied to their files, if permitted by their admin. Use our Help Center to learn more about how this update will impact end users


    Users with personal accounts: Users who are not part of a Google Workspace domain will receive a notification from Google Drive to inform them of their impacted files starting July 26, 2021 and will have the option to remove the security update. These users will have until September 13, 2021 to determine how the update is applied to their files. Use our Help Center to learn more about how this update will impact end users


    D

    End users who own or manage impacted files will receive an email notification starting July 26, 2021 with their impacted files. Depending on the settings chosen by their admin, they may have the option to remove the security update from their impacted files. 


    Rollout pace 

    • Before July 23, 2021:  
      • For non-education customers, by default the update will be applied and impacted end users will be notified, with the option to exclude their files from the update. 
      • For education customers, by default the update will be applied and impacted end users will be notified, without the option to exclude their files from the update. 
    • Starting July 26, 2021: Impacted end users will get notified about impacted files and the choices they can make. 
    • Starting September 13, 2021: Enforcement of the admin and user options will be made to selected files if settings have not been changed in advance. 

    Applicability 

    • Applicable to all Google Workspace customers, as well as G Suite Basic and Business customers. Also applicable to users with personal Google accounts.

    Google Workspace Update: New ways to discover and navigate comments in Google Sheets


    New ways to discover and navigate comments in Google Sheets

    Posted: 02 Jun 2021 01:28 PM PDT

    What’s changing

    Now in Google Sheets, you can:
    • Review comments and conversation threads in a sidebar.
    • Apply filters to find the most relevant comments for getting your work done when a document is highly collaborative.
    • Page through comment threads in a document in the comment overlay.


    Use the new comments sidebar to see all the conversations happening in a spreadsheet. Quickly reply, resolve, or create new conversations in collaboration with your colleagues.



    In highly collaborative spreadsheets, apply filters in the sidebar to find the most relevant feedback (for example, comment threads that need your response).


    Take action directly in the sidebar when tasks are complete, or conversations have been resolved.


    Use the new navigator to progress through comments in the spreadsheet.



    Who’s impacted

    End users


    Why you’d use it

    Collaborating with teammates is more important than ever, and comments are a powerful way to discuss and collaborate wherever you and your colleagues are, and whenever you’re working. By making it easier to review, respond to, and resolve comments in Sheets, it’s easier to collaborate to create more impactful data and analysis.


    Additional details

    With these new changes, you now have easy ways to see and navigate all comments in a spreadsheet by clicking:
    • The comment icon in the Appbar.
    • The "open all comments" item in the sheet tab.
    • The "open" from any comment anchored to a cell.
    • A new button in the comment overlay that allows you to page between comment threads in a document.

    Getting started

    • Admins: There is no admin control for this feature.
    • End users: This feature will be ON for everyone.

    Rollout pace

    • Scheduled Release domains: Extended rollout (potentially longer than 15 days for feature visibility) starting on June 16, 2021

    Availability

    • Available to all Google Workspace customers, as well as G Suite Basic and Business customers.
