I have been working on a KPI presentation
00:00:03
for my colleagues from the sales team
00:00:06
and I would like now to share that
00:00:08
presentation to one of our assistants.
00:00:11
That person is not in the SharePoint site.
00:00:14
Several options are offered to me.
00:00:16
The first thing to notice is that in
00:00:19
order to share the KPI PowerPoint,
00:00:21
I will not have to add the assistant
00:00:24
to the complete Sales SharePoint site.
00:00:28
This would be counterproductive
00:00:30
to give him access to so much
00:00:33
information just for one PowerPoint.
00:00:35
Let's see how I can share a document to
00:00:38
someone outside of my SharePoint site.
00:00:41
Several options are offered to me.
00:00:43
I'm going to click on the share button
00:00:46
right here and start creating a link
00:00:49
to that document from the get go.
00:00:52
I can start by adding a name.
00:00:54
Let's share it to Deezer.
00:00:56
Decide if this I can edit,
00:00:59
view or can view and not download.
00:01:04
I can write her an e-mail and
00:01:07
then click on invite.
00:01:08
An invite will send her an e-mail.
00:01:11
If I write anything in that box,
00:01:14
this text will go with the e-mail.
00:01:17
But what if I'm in a meeting
00:01:19
in teams with Visa?
00:01:21
Well,
00:01:22
I can just copy the link and paste it
00:01:24
in a team's conversation or maybe in
00:01:27
another mail that I already started with.
00:01:31
I can also use the three ellipses
00:01:34
and use the share in Outlook option.
00:01:37
This will automatically open an
00:01:40
e-mail window with a link to the file.
00:01:45
This is main address is already
00:01:47
in the two compartment.
00:01:50
One thing to notice in terms of security
00:01:53
is that when I share a file like this,
00:01:56
I would also invite you to take a look
00:01:58
at the gear button, the link settings.
00:02:02
By default my company these
00:02:06
links are people you choose.
00:02:08
I can only share with specific
00:02:11
people I choose.
00:02:12
You could also use the second type,
00:02:15
which basically means that anyone
00:02:17
inside of your organization could open
00:02:20
the link should they stumble upon it.
00:02:23
The first one that is not available in
00:02:27
my company would be open to anyone,
00:02:30
absolutely anyone inside,
00:02:31
just like outside your organization.
00:02:34
This would mean that this is the
00:02:38
least secure type of link here
00:02:40
in terms of good practices,
00:02:42
we will strongly advise you to
00:02:45
always use people you choose.
00:02:47
This allows Microsoft to realize
00:02:50
specifically who is intending
00:02:52
on opening a document.
00:02:54
If you have to share it though
00:02:56
to quite a big group of people,
00:02:58
well the second one would also work as
00:03:01
it is strictly inside your organization.
00:03:05
Once you have shared that document,
00:03:08
we would also advise you maybe a few days,
00:03:11
few weeks later maybe to go to the
00:03:14
three ellipses on the KPI presentation
00:03:16
and click on Manage Access.
00:03:21
We can see right here that Lisa has a key,
00:03:25
a link and she can edit.
00:03:28
If I go to Links, I can see the
00:03:32
specific link I sent her and
00:03:34
once she gave me her feedback,
00:03:36
I'm going to remove the link.
00:03:39
The idea is not to leave
00:03:43
opened links forever,
00:03:44
and now with that option you are
00:03:48
allowed to share documents to
00:03:50
someone outside your SharePoint
00:03:52
site without having to share
00:03:55
the entire SharePoint site.
