With Google Drive, you can share files — like documents, images, and PDFs — without having to email them as attachments and then you can collaborate on. Sharing is as easy as indicating which email addresses or mailing lists should have access to a given file.
Share a file with an email address or mailing list
- Go to drive.google.com.
- Check the box next to the file or folder you’d like to share.
- Click the Share icon.
- Choose a visibility option: “Private,” “Anyone with the link” or “Public on the web.”
- Type the email addresses of the people you want to share with in the text box below “Add people.” You can add a single person or a mailing list.
- Choose the access level from the drop-down menu next to each collaborator: “Can view,” “Can comment,” or “Can edit.”
- Click Share & save.
