Fast Facts about File Sharing

  • There are three ways to share files.

  • First, you can email files as attachments.

  • Create smaller PDF versions of your large documents to save space and to prevent your email recipients from altering the attached files.

  • Second, you can use cloud services such as Google Drive or Dropbox to share files.

  • Third, you can share files during a video conference by using the “share screen” option.
