Open your SharePoint 365 site & add a file to it.


Step 2 Choose Share option

Select the file & choose the SHARE option from the appearing dialog.image

Enter the email address of your contact.  The document will be shared with him/her.


Click the Share button to close the dialog

Step 3: Receive email

Wait for a minute & you should receive the email link for the shared file.



This is a quick post about sharing files over SharePoint Online.  The same functionality is available in SharePoint On-Premise too, but additional email configuration is necessary.
