The next step in our Digital Basecamp training is to work collaboratively on a document with a colleague.
Platforms like OneDrive allow more than one person to work on a document at the same time, helping manage version control, reduce the volume of data being transferred back and forth over our network, and reducing the number of emails we all send and receive. It’s a major efficiency gain for us, and has the benefit of keeping you #connected to your colleagues in a way that email doesn’t.
To complete this step, ensure your document is saved to your OneDrive account and investigate how to share it with a colleague without emailing it.
Your collaborator can proofread your article, and may make suggestions to improve its optimisation based on their own knowledge and research. You should do the same if you are invited to collaborate.
Once you’re happy with your collaboration, visit here and paste the public link for the shared document along with your email address. This task should take no more than about 30 minutes.
