Creating documents

Use the New button in the Files application to create a document.


  1. In the menu bar, click Apps and then select Files.
  2. In Files, click the New button and select Document.
  3. Type a name for the new document and click Create.

What to do next

  • To have others work on the document with you, click the Share button in the document. Begin typing a person's name and select it from the list. If you don't see the correct name, type the person's email address in the field. The person receives an email inviting them to edit the file. Multiple editors can make changes to the document at the same time.
  • By default, a version is automatically published (made available to readers that you want to share it with), after the last editor has left the session. To add readers, return to the Files details window and click the Sharing tab to give access to people that you want to be readers. Note that you can share a file with readers only from the Files application.
