Action: 

After you click on SHARE, a new action box will appear. To invite a Lehigh user to this document, simply start typing their name or email address in the field provided and a search will be made of Lehigh's LDAP directory to find the user. Click on the appropriate person from the search results. To invite someone that is external to the University, just enter their email address and confirm by clicking on the item in the search results. Repeat this process to add multiple people to the list.

Step Number: 
5
Action: 

You can optionally include a message that will be sent to the selected person(s).

Note that the box next to "Require sign-in" is checked by default. Lehigh users will sign in with their Lehigh email address and password. Non-Lehigh users will need to use a personal Microsoft account to login. If you are sharing with someone from another University that is also using Microsoft's Office 365, then they will be able to use their University email and password just as we do.

Action: 

Once you click Share, email invitations will be sent to all selected users. A pop-up box will appear briefly in the top right corner of the screen indicating that the file has been shared.

You will notice that the selected file now has a picture of several people under the sharing column.
