Sharing Documents outside of Glasnost

Sometimes you want to quickly share a document with someone who is not a user of your Glasnost system. Or perhaps a group of people. But you do not want to download the document and then send it on via email.

And sometimes you want to password protect the document.

Or make it available only for a certain amount of time.

Well, now that is all possible from within Glasnost.

Click on a document so it shows in spreadsheet view. You'll see a new button to the right of 'Delete' entitled 'Share'. Click on that and you'll see the pop up below.

Share Documents

In this pop up you can specify one or more emails of people you wish to share the document with. Add a message to go with it and decide how long you want it to be available for. Finally, you can add a password if you wish.

Your colleagues will then receive an email with all the details and a link to click on which will take them to a secure webpage to download the document.

Simple, elegant.... and very handy.
