How to Send E-mail Link of a SharePoint Library Document


After updating or uploading a document, you may have to share the new changes with your other team members to allow them review, collaborate and make their own changes. Earlier, you needed to attach the document before finally sending it.


Unfortunately, attaching any document can cause file duplication because team members save different versions of the document from their e-mail to their local drive. This, renders document control and change management very difficult.


However, SharePoint bypasses this big confusion by allowing you to send e-mail along with a link that provides your colleagues access to your document. Additionally, this also informs team members of the updates that have been made without removing the corresponding file from document management system.


In this tutorial, we will understand the steps to send e-mail link of a SharePoint library document.
