Collavate Update - Limited ‘Scope’ to address security concern and improved Post feature

When initially launching Collavate, permission is requested to access the user’s Google Drive to permit file submissions and approval process workflows.  Before this update, Collavate users were concerned that the application required too much access permission and that their personal information may be at stake.
