Being able to collaborate on a document with other people is an integral part to Office 365. This allows multiple people to edit, even in real time, the same document without having to worry about a master version or sync issues. Office 365 makes this extremely easy from their web apps to their desktop applications.
The below steps indicate how to begin sharing a document for collaboration.
- Share a new file by creating it within the desired application (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, etc.). You can quickly do this from the Office 365 Portal
- At the top right of the document, click the "Share" icon and choose who you'd like to share it with
- You can also easily share pre-existing documents from OneDrive by locating the file and clicking the "..." button to expand details. From here, select "Share link"
- This will bring up the share window where you can select who you wish to share the document with
