Question

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

Answer

  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
