It used to be that if you wanted to share something in Google Docs with other people, you had to open the document, click the Share tab, and type in the names there. Not so any longer. There’s a new Share button in the document list now, which lets you select and share documents, spreadsheets, and presentations without even opening them.
That’s not all, either. You can now share multiple items at the same time, too. The Official Google Docs Blog calls this new addition “Mo’ betta sharing“, and Google Operating System pitches in with separate coverage titled “Invite Collaborators to Multiple Documents“.
I should start spreading this around, since one of the clubs I’m a member of uses Google Docs heavily, with a lot of sharing. It should speed things up around there, that’s for sure.
