Restricting access by date to a file link with external tool Office 365

I know I can restrict access by date to file that has been uploaded into Canvas.

But is there a way to restrict access by date to a file linked with external tool Office 365?

I cannot find a way.

@parmana Thank you for reaching out to your community for support. If you are using the external tool in an assignment, you can create lock dates that will restrict access to the file during a specific period of time. If you are uploading the file using a link in modules or on a page, for example, I recommend seeing what features are available in Office365 for restricting access during specific dates. Since Office365 is not managed by Canvas, our expertise is not on their specific features. Here is a link for Microsoft support that may be helpful with setting expiration dates to files
