View/Edit a SharePoint Document Shared With You


How do I view and edit a document shared with me via SharePoint?


  1. Click the shared document link you received via email or directly from someone with access to the document. 
  2. If you have read-only permission, you will be able to read and view the document only.
  3. If you have edit permissions, you can edit the document by typing directly into the document
    • You can add comments, track changes, etc. 
  4. Changes made since you last viewed the document will be called out in a pop-up window as well as with a colored circle next to the area changed
    • Hover your mouse over the circle to view the change/edit details
