Lehigh Office 365 allows you to share your documents with others - either simply to view or for collaborative work. For this example, we will be using Word Online.
On the sharing dialog box that opens, you will be able to add viewers/collaborators as well as a message before sharing.
- In the first box, add names (Lehigh recipients) or email addresses of those you wish to share with.
- In the drop down, you can choose between giving Edit rights or allowing those you share with to view the document only.
- In the message box, you can optionally include a message to those you are sharing the file with.
Before sharing, you can choose to require or not require users who you are sharing the document with to sign-in to their Office 365 account before being able to access it. You also have the option of sending or not sending an email invitation to recipients of the file share. Both of these options are checked by default.
Finally, when you are ready to share the document, click the Share button.
Alternatively, you can share a document by distributing a link. To do this, select the Get a link option on the sharing dialog box. You can get a link simply for viewing or one specifically for edit access. Copy the link to your clipboard and paste into emails, documents, or anywhere you wish to share access. Remember, anyone with this link will be able to access your document so only share with those you intend to have it.
