In Home and Files, you can manage permissions for all of your documents, presentations, and spreadsheets. You can also set permissions on folders. To learn more, see Set Folder Permissions.
Permissions determine the level of editing available to collaborators and groups. Owners can set and update permissions for collaborators and groups. Typically, you'll set permissions early in the process, but you can change them at any time.
There are three permission levels that you can assign:
Owners have full rights to the document and can manage permissions.
Editors can make changes to the document.
Viewers can view a document but cannot make any changes.
To see more details about each permission level, see Understanding Permissions.
