This is something that we’ve been waiting to see, and it’s now here.
Google Apps is introducing the ability to set an “expiration date” for specific user access to files in Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, and Slides. This can be done by accessing the advanced sharing settings, where a new button will appear beside users that you have shared your file with who have either edit or comment rights only (this function is not available for viewers).
It can be difficult, not to mention time-consuming, to navigate lengthy, complex documents. To make that process easier, today we’re launching an outline tool in Google Docs on the web and Android. Displayed in a pane to the left of the page, this outline features headers for each section of your document, making it simple to quickly jump from section to section.
Google Apps is launching the ability to export Google Docs files as EPUB publications. Simply go to the File menu > Download as > EPUB Publication (.epub).
