Removing team members from a drive

The drive owner and drive admins can remove drive members from the Members tab of their account settings.

Before removing a drive member

It's important to note that project owners will retain access to projects they've created after being removed, unless they or the drive owner explicitly transfers the ownership of each project to another member of the drive. Please see Transfer project ownership for details.

  1. Visit or open the app; there are a few ways to view the Members tab from within the app:
    • Select your profile in the top right corner; click Settings, and select Members.


    • Select your drive in the top left corner and choose Members from the drop down menu.


  2. Click Remove member on the ellipsis menu. You will be prompted to confirm the removal with additional details about removing a drive member.

Replacing a drive member

The drive owner can also replace drive members from the Members tab of their account settings:

  1. Remove the drive member you are replacing. If the member you removed was an Editor, you will now have an available paid seat.
  2. Invite the new member to your drive.

How removing a drive member affects billing

Removing an editor member will create an unallocated seat on your drive that's available to use for the remainder of your billing cycle. When your billing cycle renews, your account will be charged based on the number of filled seats on your drive at that time.

How removing a drive member affects permissions

Once you remove a team member, they will immediately lose access to any projects they have not created or been explicitly shared on. Likewise, once you add a team member, they’ll have access to any projects shared with members of the drive.
