Is it possible to temporarily restrict access to a shared folder?

New member | Level 2


I'm wondering if it's possible to temporarily block users who are shared to a file from accessing it. I know that it's possible to entirely remove them from the folder but that's not what I would like. Ideally I want to make it possible for them to be unable to view/download files for the next month without having to reshare the entire folder to them again.

It isnt @deb8isfun I'm afraid. They either have access or they dont. It isnt possible to put time restrictions on it.
