How to Email a Google Doc
Google Docs is an excellent tool for creating and collaborating on documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. However, sharing these files can be a little tricky, especially if you’re not familiar with how to email a Google Doc. In this article, we’ll walk you through the steps you need to follow to easily share your Google Docs via email.
Step 1: Open the Google Doc you want to share
The first step in emailing a Google Doc is to open the document you want to share in Google Docs. If you’re not sure how to do this, go to your Google Drive, find the document you want to share, and click on it. This will open the file, and you’ll be ready to share it.
Step 2: Click on the “Share” button
Once you have your Google Doc open, click on the “Share” button in the top right-hand corner of the screen. This will open the sharing settings for the document.
Step 3: Select the people you want to share the document with
In the “Share” settings menu, you’ll see a field where you can enter the email addresses of the people you want to share the document with. You can either type in the email addresses manually or select people from your contacts list.
Step 4: Choose the sharing permissions
Next, you’ll need to decide what level of access you want to give the people you’re sharing the document with. There are several options to choose from, including:
– Can view: Allows users to view the file, but not make any changes
– Can comment: Allows users to view the file and add comments, but not make any changes
– Can edit: Allows users to view the file and make changes
Choose the option that best suits your needs for the document.
Step 5: Add a message to your email
Before you send your email, you might want to add a message explaining what the document is about or why you’re sharing it. You can do this in the “Message” field in Google Docs’ sharing settings.
Step 6: Send your email
Finally, when you’re ready, click the “Send” button at the bottom of the sharing settings menu. This will send an email to the people you added, with a link to the Google Doc.
In conclusion, sharing a Google Doc via email is a quick and easy process once you know where to find the sharing settings. Just remember to select the right sharing permissions, add a message to your email, and click “Send” to share your document with others.
