Microsoft’s Cloud storage service SkyDrive allows you to access your files anywhere and share it with anyone. Recently, it was updated and many new features were included and improvements were made, to provide a smooth and a seamless web experience. As an example of it, Office 2013 suite was integrated into the service. Integration of the Office web apps suggested that a user could easily create and share a document directly via SkyDrive, anytime.
Create and Share an Office Document Directly Via SkyDrive
Log into your SkyDrive account. If you do not have the one, create it.
Once on the main page of the cloud service, click ‘Create’. Then, click on the drop-down arrow just adjacent to the option and choose the type of document you would like to create and share with others. I chose Word document.
Next, give a suitable title to your document and hit the Create button.
Now, you can start by giving your document a suitable heading. By default the text color is black however, you can change it to the color of your choice by clicking on the drop-down arrow adjacent to the text color icon. See the screen-shot below.
Like Google Docs, your document will be periodically saved, but do not forget to save it in the end, when you have finished.
Once finished, your document is ready to be shared. To share, click the File menu located in the upper left corner of your computer screen and from the list of options displayed, choose ‘Share’.
Once you select the option, you can share the document with a selected group of people. Here, you will be required to enter the email address of the recipient along with a short message.If you are sending the document for editing, you can give the editing rights to the recipient. Also, you can post the document link to Facebook as you get an option for that too.
Once you have specified all the requirements, click ‘Share’. The document will be sent to the recipient’s mail address and he will get the message as an email along with a link to the document.
Hope this helps!
