Following on from our digital trainer's Microsoft Teams Top Tips, Tonia is back with some tips to help you get the most out of OneDrive & SharePoint. Here's her latest tip, at the end of which you can download the full set. As always, we hope you find them useful as we continue into week three of our second lockdown.
When you’re working remotely it’s difficult to show colleagues which file you would like them to access, you can’t quickly turn around to talk to them and show them the exact file. Therefore, if you’ve already shared a file with a colleague or it’s in a SharePoint document library that your colleague has access to, all you have to do is copy the link to the file.
This is how to do it:
Go to office.com
Launch SharePoint or OneDrive
Navigate to the file you wish to share
Hover over the file and select the 3 dots (show actions) >> select copy link from the menu choices
The following screen will appear showing that the link has been copied and people with existing access can use the link
You can now paste the link into an appropriate method of communication with your colleague such as a Microsoft Teams message or email.
