Share a Google Drive File

Sharing Google Drive files allows you to collaborate in real time with colleagues, classmates, or friends. It also prevents you from ever having to send an email attachment again. You can share your files with as many or as few people as you like. You can share Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, and Drawings the same way. Choose the application you would like to use.

If you are sharing a Google Drive file from your OC account, only those within the OC domain will be able to view it.
