Sending an Email with AttachThis

Sending an Email with AttachThis

Collaborating on documents with your colleagues is easier than ever. AttachThis works the way you do – in Outlook – while giving you access to SharePoint’s collaborative power. Simply send an email attachment as you normally would.

Selecting the SharePoint Location

Selecting the SharePoint Location

Once you hit “Send,” all you have to do is select how you want to send the attachment. If you want it uploaded to SharePoint, you can easily select the location in the drop-down menu, and then select who can access the attachment (access granting only available in AttachThis Pro).

Receiving an email using AttachThis

Voila! Now your email is sent with a link to the SharePoint location rather than the bulky email attachment. Recipients simply click on the link and the document opens. Since the document is now stored in SharePoint, you’ll have a single source of edits from your various collaborators.

Creating Personalized Smart Tags

AttachThis makes selecting the SharePoint location easy with “smart tags” – easy-to-recognize names for the locations you use most. Within the AttachThis dialogue box, simply select the Options icon at the top and begin creating your own smart tags!
