Google Slides is a powerful tool for creating and sharing presentations. One of its strengths is the ability to collaborate with multiple users in real time. But what happens when you need to revoke a user’s access? Whether it’s because a project is finished, a team member has left, or there are too many cooks in the kitchen, sometimes it’s necessary to remove someone from a Google Slides document. Here’s how you can do it:
Step 1: Open Your Google Slides Document
Before anything else, you’ll need to open the Google Slides document you want to manage access for.
Step 2: Click on “Share”
Once you’ve opened your document, look at the top right corner of your screen. You should see a button labeled “Share.” Click on it. This will open a new window that displays everyone who currently has access to the document.
Step 3: Manage Access
In the Share with People and Groups section, you’ll see a list of people who have access to your presentation. Here, you can manage their permissions or remove their access entirely. To remove a person, click on the dropdown menu next to their name.
Step 4: Remove Access
After clicking the dropdown menu, select “Remove.” This will immediately revoke that person’s access to the Google Slides document. They will no longer be able to view, comment, or edit the document.
Here is how it looks in code:
Google Slides makes collaboration easy, but there are times when you need to limit the number of collaborators or revoke access after a collaboration has ended. By following these steps, you can control who has access to your Google Slides documents. Remember to always consider privacy and security when sharing documents online.
