  4. You can share a file by sending a 'shareable link'. Use the shareable link when you want to copy and paste it into an email to a person or group of people. You can also use the shareable link to copy and paste into the Website URL submission type in a Canvas assignment. To get the shareable link, click 'Get shareable link'.

  10. If you do not need a shareable link to paste into an email or assignment in Canvas, you can share your document with individual people below. If you are sending it to someone within the CVTC community, start typing their name and their email should populate, allowing you to click on their name. If they are outside the CVTC community, you will have to type their entire email address. Once you have added your recipients, click on the pencil icon to the right to set their permissions. Here you can identify if your recipient(s) can view, edit, or comment on your document. Once you have selected your recipient(s) and permissions, click 'Send'. Your recipients will get an email notification and link to access your document.

    • ** Clicking 'Advanced' will open up more options such as modifying permissions for individual recipients, setting expiration dates, and more.
