Google Workspace Business Starter and Front-line customers can now collaborate with people who are not using a Google account in Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Sites
Google is making visitor sharing available to Google Workspace Business Starter and Front-line customers, with a limit of five visitor shares per month, per user.
With visitor sharing, you can share items with non-Google accounts, enabling them to view, comment on, or edit content in Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Sites using a secure pin code
- Sharing outside of your organization to users with non-Google accounts will be ON by default if you currently allow users in your organization to send sharing invitations to people outside your organization who are not using a Google account.
- Sharing outside of your organization to users with non-Google accounts will be OFF by default if you currently do not allow sharing outside your organization. Use our Help Center to learn more about sharing to non-Google accounts.
- Visitor sharing will be controlled by new settings at Admin console > Apps > G Suite > Drive and Docs > Sharing Settings (pictured below). These settings can be controlled at the domain or OU level.
