The ever-so-brill @VivianManning at Small City Law Firm Tech has updated a prior post of hers about a quick and easy way to send a hyperlink to a networked file in Outlook. This tutorial makes it just stupidly simple for you to drop a link into an email so you can prompt a co-worker (yes, you have to be working at the same place and hooked up to the same network with the same drive letters for this to work) to review/revise a shared network file.
This kind of mimics the functionality you’d see in something like Worldox, where you can send other people links to the document so they can update the file on the network server for everyone’s benefit.
If you can get the hang of the whole right-click mouse drag-and-drop trick (right button, people! no, on the right!), this is actually a cool way to collaborate. As far as I can tell, this would work in any version of Outlook.
Way to go, Vivian!
