Sharing a Site

With SharePoint, you can send an invitation to share a site (New!) with others who do or don’t already have access to it. You can specify a name from your members or enter any email address, and include a personal message with your invitation. That’s all you need to do, unless you want to specify other options to send an email invitation or set a group or permission level (New!) including Members [Edit], Owners [Full Control], or Visitor [Read]. Whenever a site document gets updated, you can receive alerts in your Newsfeed. You can also use your mobile device to share a site document or folder in a library.
