How it works:
- Go to File > Save As, and choose a OneDrive or SharePoint location.
If you’ve never done this before, click Add a Place, and then add your OneDrive or SharePoint service by signing in.
- Back in the document, click Share in the upper right, and invite people so they can edit with you. They’ll get email with a link to your doc.
When they follow the link, your doc opens for them in their version of Word, or in their web browser (Word Online).
If they’re using Word Online or Word 2016 and have agreed to automatically share changes, you’ll see each other working in the same document.
Note: The first time you do this in Word 2016, say Yes to automatic sharing.
Tip: If you’d rather skip the email, Get a sharing link instead, and then create an edit link you can send.
