Note: This process is meant for sharing with individuals, or for use with an LMS like Canvas/Schoology. To share using Google Classroom, please see these articles: 

Sharing can be done directly with Google Drive or via Kami using sharing links.

  1. Via Google Drive 

To Share through Google Drive, right-click the file and select "Get shareable link" or "Share" as seen below:

You can then set the sharing permissions for the document. ("Can edit" means the students/other users will all collaborate on the same file, "Can view" means they can view the file and if they try to edit it, they will be prompted to create their own copy.)

Note: The recipients of the file must also open the file in Kami, to allow you to collaborate on the file.

2. Via Kami
You can also share via the Share button in the top right corner of Kami, which looks like three dots connected by two lines.

Once the file is uploaded to our servers, you will be provided with a link.

This link can then be shared with anyone that you wish to work with. That will automatically open the file into Kami for them. 

If "Anyone with a link can annotate is chosen", everyone who clicks on that link will be working from and annotating on the same File. 

There is an option for "Anyone with link will get their own copy uploaded to Google Drive", which creates a new copy of the file for each person who clicks on the link. This isn't available at default but we can switch it on at request.

Removing Shared Files:

If you need to remove access to a shared file, there are two ways to do that, depending on how the file was originally shared

For files shared via Google Drive, you can remove access by right-clicking on the file in Drive, opening up the share menu, and removing the individual users access to the file:

If the file has been shared out using a Kami Sharing Link, then to unshare the file, you would need to open the original file in Kami, then open the sharing menu using the share button. Then click on the "Remove Upload" button at the bottom of the share menu:

That removes the file upload from the Kami cloud and disables the sharing link. Anyone who tries to use that link after that point will receive this message.
