What to do next

  • To have others work on the spreadsheet with you, click the Share button in the spreadsheet. Begin typing a person's name and select it from the list. If you don't see the correct name, type the person's email address in the field. The person receives an email inviting them to edit the file. Multiple editors can make changes to the spreadsheet at the same time.
  • By default, a version is automatically published (made available to readers that you want to share it with), after the last editor has left the session. To add readers, return to the Files window and click Share to give access to people that you want to be readers. Note that you can share a file with readers only from the Filesapplication.
