Transcript

In the main lesson, you organized your address book in a spreadsheet.

In this extension video, you will share your address book spreadsheet with a family member or friend.

One benefit of organizing a digital address book is the ability to share it with others who contact the same people as you do.

For example, you might share it with a family member who regularly contacts extended family members who you’ve added to your address book.

To begin, go to Google Drive, and open your spreadsheet.

Now, share your spreadsheet.

Select the sharing permission you want to use.

“Can edit” means the person you share with can make changes directly in the spreadsheet.

“Can comment” allows them to make comments, but not edit the script.

And “can view” lets them see your spreadsheet only.

In this example, permission to view the address book only is given, but you may choose a different permission.

Enter the name or email address in the field for the person you want to share the address book with.

Include a note telling them why you are sharing it.

Then, share your spreadsheet.

They will receive an email inviting them to either view, edit, or comment on your spreadsheet, depending on the permission you selected.

Now, it’s your turn: Go to Google Drive, and open your spreadsheet.

And share your spreadsheet with a family member or friend.
