You know the drill - you need someone to edit/review a document so you email it to them. They make their revisions and email it back to you. Someone else gets it, makes revisions, and sends it to you and several other people for their input. Now you have several versions of the document floating around and no idea which is the one you actually want. Frustrating, no? Time to leave that review process behind. Using SharePoint Online to collaborate and share documents is simple and allows you to share a link to the document online rather than sending the document itself.
Collaborators can access the document online via the link, work on it alone or in conjunction with someone else online at the same time - all changes are saved and all versions are kept in case you need to revert to an older version.
Not only does this process save you time and effort, but it also keeps those Outlook .pst files from growing to gargantuan proportions. I'd call this a "win-win". Happy collaborating!
