Once you have made significant progress with your college research, you may want to share what you’ve discovered with people who can help with your college decision.

For example, if you have a school counselor, they might have advice to give about the schools you’ve selected.

You also might want to include family, friends, coaches, or teachers in your decision-making process and college evaluations.

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

Now, select “Share.

Select the 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.

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

Give the person permission to comment so you can get their feedback on your college spreadsheet.

Enter the name or email address in the field.

Include a note letting them know about your college research and inviting them to share their feedback.

Then, click “done.”

They will receive an email inviting them to comment on your spreadsheet.
