Pause/Hold Sharing while updating Excel File

New Contributor

I have a document that I'm going to share with my group and I will have to be updating it. They always need access to the information but I just don't want them to see me updating it. Does anyone have recommendations while using excel?

If you share files on SharePoint you may use versioning and allow other people to see only approved versions of files. More is here How versioning works in lists and libraries (

Perfect! Thanks!
