Sharing files and folders


When you use Microsoft 365 Business and save your files to OneDrive or SharePoint, sharing your files is the same wherever or however you work.

Share a file or folder

  1. With a file open or a file or folder selected, select Share.
  2. If you are working on your desktop and the file hasn’t been saved to OneDrive or SharePoint, select a location you want to upload your file.
  3. Select the down arrow to choose permissions for the link you will be sharing. Options include:
  • Anyone (if your organisation allows it)
  • People in your organisation
  • Specific people
  1. Select Apply to save the permissions.
  2. Enter the name or email address of people you want to share with.
  3. Type a message.
  4. Select Send.
    Or, you can select Copy Link and send the link in an email or add it to a file.
