Setting Up Time-Based Access Controls in Cocoon Data

Welcome to our tutorial on setting up time-based access controls in Cocoon Data. This guide will take you through the process of defining a specific timeframe within which a collaborator can access your shared data.

Applying Time-Based Access Controls

Time-based access controls in Cocoon Data allow you to specify the period during which a collaborator can access the shared data. Here's how you can apply this control:

  1. Click on the file to which you want to apply this control, and select Share.

  2. Fill in the collaborator details as you normally would. When you're ready to apply a time restriction, select Sharing Period.

  3. Define the timeframe during which you want the collaborator to have access to your data. Choose a specific date and time of day for this.

  4. If you do not want to apply this time restriction to the co-owners of the file, untick the respective box.

  5. Click Share to enforce the time-based control policy.

That's all there is to setting up time-based access controls in Cocoon Data. By using this feature, you can have granular control over the access period for each shared file or folder, adding an extra layer of security and compliance to your data sharing processes.
