Collaborate in Google Sheets

There are several ways to collaborate in Google Sheets.

Method 1: Collaborate by sharing files with limited people

Step 1

Find the file you wish to share, select it, and click the Share button.


Step 2

There will be a dialogue box. Enter the email addresses of the people you want to share the file with within the People box. You can provide a note that will be emailed to the recipients of the file if you like.


Step 3

Select Send. It will be shared with others.

Method 2: Collaborate by sharing the file’s link

A link to any file in your Google Drive can be quickly shared with a more significant number of individuals. In essence, a link is the web address or URL of any file you want to share. This is particularly useful for items like music or video files that would be too huge to send as an email attachment. A file can be shared by putting the URL on a public website. The link will take everyone who clicks it to the file.



That’s all there is to it. You are welcome to copy the example spreadsheet below to see how it is done. The most crucial lesson is to enjoy yourself while doing it.
