Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding sharing and collaboration, part of Up and Running with Box.
- When we're talking about software…like Word or Excel, we'll often use the word…share and collaborate almost interchangeably.…I shared a file with you and that makes us collaborators…or we're collaborating on a shared file.…But there is a distinction in box…and it's a distinction worth noting.…When I share, what I'm doing is I'm sending a link…to a file or to a folder to one or more individuals.…I might send them three different files or folder,…but in any event I'm sending one or more persons a link.…
And that link will allow that person then…to view or to download that file…or the files that are in a folder that I shared with them.…This is a great replacement for email attachments.…Because when I send someone…an email attachment, it's time-dated.…For example, today I send you an attachment by email…of a Word document that I've finished almost…and you don't open it until next Tuesday…or maybe open it 10 times between now and then.…
But in the meantime, I'm continuing…to work on that document.…You have the version that was stale dated as of today.…
